Thank you to everyone who has donated to the GFM page. The  money will be transferred out of this account later today and put directly in the Marching Pride Scholars account to benefit Juniors and Seniors in The Pride. Once the money is transferred out, this account will be shut down.

If you would still like to contribute to the Marching Pride Scholars fund after this page is disabled, please contact the KSU Foundation using code Q09575. If you would like to donate to the new Dr. Tracz scholarship to benefit students in the band enrolled full-time at K-State, then please visit www.found.ksu.edu/give/tracz . 

Thank you again for all your support, not only for the band but for DT. This has been quite a week.

Thank you all for your continued support of the #StandWithDT GoFundMe. After speaking to the band, they have requested that the money be placed in the scholarship funds for the band through the KSU Foundation.
If you would rather contribute directly to the band's scholarship funds rather than through this page, please visit: http://www.k-state.edu/band/ and click on "Help Support the Band and Doctor Tracz." The money can support one of two scholarship accounts.

If you have donated money to this account but do not wish to have it used in a student scholarship fund, please send me an e-mail and I will work with you to ensure that you receive a refund.

Thank you for all you do, and go Cats!

Band members were walking around the parking lot before the game selling value cards to help raise money for the band. They said they are underfunded and needed to do fundraising. Hope this effort helps with that.

Let's leave the account open for 24 hours to see how much support we can gather. Many people are still at work and won't even be aware of this until later this evening.

not that it matters if the money is going towards KSU band - but, I believe the school was fined, not the director.

Can you modify the description to say exactly where the money is going? I'd advise donating to the KSUMB scholarship fund.

Hey Sarah, just a heads up: The link to the new donation page seems to be dead, but it should work if you remove the period from the end of it. Thanks for setting all of this up and giving us a chance to contribute!

ok, quick question - it goes to the KSU foundation but still goes to Band scholarships right? I mean its not going to end up in the Political Science Department right? (calm down, PolySci 94)

As much as I would like to see how much money the FAMILY can raise, I think at this point respecting Dr. Tracz and the band administration is more important. They have been through enough and their wishes and opinions should be paramount. Thank you doing this!

Sarah, thanks for standing behind @KStatePride! Please reach out to me about how you wants these gofundme funds to be used. In the meantime, www.found.ksu.edu/give/band is a link specifically set up to support @KStatePride scholarships. Also, contributors are given a receipt for their charitable contribution (we do not have the same ability when a gofundme page is established). We don’t want to slow your efforts to raise funds, but want to share this option as well. @KSUsheCAT

Looks like we need to raise the limit again...(shouldn't be a limit.) We can certainly show anyone outside of the Purple Pride family what true support, dedication and the love of our University looks like!
