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.

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