Punt the Virus Victory Fund - In Memory of Keith Klein

With Keith Klein's passing January 25, the Bloomington campus lost a treasured colleague, loyal friend and fierce supporter.

It's fitting the final campaign Keith lent his face to was #PuntTheVirus, launched on Giving Tuesday 2020. As a career high school sports official, he loved the football theme, making the above video and cheering on others to support this game-changing campaign for our students.

Keith understood the impact of the pandemic on our students. Many are without jobs, live with food insecurity and struggle to stay in school in the face of competing priorities. We think he would be thrilled to know his voice will continue to inspire others to help:

  • replenish campus food pantries
  • provide digital hotspots for Internet connectivity
  • pay for rent, tuition, fees and other essential services

... all so our students can stay in the game, persist in their coursework and complete their education.

Keith will be remembered as a man of action and conviction. Act today with your own gift to #PuntTheVirus and together, let's honor his legacy.


Choose a giving level



Avoid passing. Every extra player (and $10) helps defeat COVID.



Your $25 will help put food on our students' training tables and sack COVID.



Intercept COVID; make it pay and help us stock our student food pantry.



Achieve a state of grace and stun COVID with your gift. $75 will buy a textbook and hot meal for a student.



Bedazzle COVID with your generosity. $100 helps with rent and utilities needed to house our student players.



Pioneered by ex-Colts coach Tony Dungee, it's one of the best defenses against COVID. Also covers 2 textbooks and digital access codes.



You make the call. You dictate how COVID will go down. You help buy a digital hotspot.



You went deep. COVID devastated. Tuition covered. Game over.
