WICHITA, Kan. - Wichita State Athletics has launched its first-ever GiveCampus crowdfunding campaign for the Shocker Softball program.

Money raised will provide the resources needed to fulfill and enhance the look and branding of Wilkins Stadium - the home of Shocker Softball. Our goal to enhance and brand Wilkins Stadium is a high priority for our softball program, which affects every aspect of current and future softball student-athletes. We are launching a capital campaign to achieve the branding goal, and encourage you to get involved.

"We're going to need the support of our community, our fans, alumni, parents and former student-athletes," said Wichita State head softball coach Kristi Bredbenner.

Crowdfunding uses the internet, email and social media to raise gifts of varying amounts from a large number of people. The department's goal is to inspire Shocker Nation to support the softball program by making a donation. There is no donation minimum and every gift goes toward the project.

The most successful crowdfunding campaigns use the power of their follower's social networks to increase visibility of the project. Wichita State Softball encourages alumni, parents, student-athletes and fans to assist with this campaign by making a gift and sharing their giving experiences with friends and family.


"The bottom line is that if we want to continue to create a competitive atmosphere here, we've got to be able to compete in the American Athletic Conference and our administration understands the importance of that," Bredbenner said. "They are putting as much money as they can to help that, but we need a little bit more help in a lot of different areas. That is something I'm here asking for, is for you to step in and support our program. Our kids have definitely done a good job of putting Wichita State softball on the map."
