The Loper Fund for UNK Athletics
This fund provides donors the opportunity to invest in the UNK athletic program, while giving athletics administration the flexibility to use the funds in the area of greatest need.
Intercollegiate athletics are a vital component of the educational program and student life at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, and student-athletes are an integral part of the student body. The athletics program is conducted in a manner designed to protect and enhance the physical, educational, social, emotional and social welfare of student-athletes while complementing their academic experience.
Rich earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a journalism major from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. A McCook native, he joined the foundation in 2016 after more than 20 years of professional experience working on UNK’s campus as a member of the athletics department and announcer for Loper games. Rich’s fundraising efforts are focused on UNK athletics and the Library, the Honors Program and the Frank House.
When you make a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation you can trust that it will be used in the way in which it was intended. That’s a promise we’ve kept with our donors since our organization was founded in 1936.
