INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT

To the Board of Directors of


K-State Athletics, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of K-State Athletics, Inc. (a non-profit
organization, and blended component unit of Kansas State University), which comprise the
statements of financial position as of June 30, 2020 and 2019, and the related statements of
activities, functional expenses, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to
the financial statements.
Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements
in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this
includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the
preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement,
whether due to fraud or error.
Auditor's Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We
conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States
of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment,
including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether
due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control
relevant to the entity' s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to
design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of
expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity' s internal control. Accordingly, we express
no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used
and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as
evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis
for our qualified audit opinion.
Basis for Qualified Opinion

K-State Athletics, Inc. 's financial statements do not value life settlement contracts and donor pledges to
continue payment of premiums at fair market value as discussed in Note 1. In our opinion, fair market
valuation is required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
K-State Athletics, Inc. 's financial statements do not disclose the aggregate carrying amount of all
investments by major type and the related basis for determining the fair values of those investments as
of June 30, 2020. In our opinion, disclosure of the information is required by accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States of America.
Qualified Opinion

In our opinion, except for the possible effects of the matters described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion
paragraphs, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial
position of K-State Athletics, Inc. as of June 30, 2020 and 20 19, and the changes in its net assets and its
cash flows for the years then ended in accordance w ith accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States of America.
Report on Supplementary Information

Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements as a whole.
The supplementary schedules of activities by program are presented for purposes of additional analysis
and are not a required part of the financial statements. Such information is the responsibility of
management and was derived from and relates directly to the underlying accounting and other records
used to prepare the financial statements. The information has been subjected to the auditing procedures
applied in the audit of the financial statements and certain additional procedures, including comparing
and reconciling such information directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare
the financial statements or to the financial statements themselves, and other additional procedures in
accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. In our opinion,

r
the information is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the financial statements as a whole.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019

Note 1: Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Nature of Operations
K-State Athletics, Inc. (KSA) is a not-for-profit entity, organized under the laws of the State of Kansas.
It was formed to provide an intercollegiate athletic program for the students, faculty, alumni, guests
and visitors of Kansas State University (University). KSA’s primary source of revenue is derived from
athletic event ticket sales, conference distributions and contributions. As a blended component unit of
the University, KSA has agreed to operate as a department of the University and be subject to the
regulations and administrative policies of the University.
Basis of Accounting
The financial statements of the Organization have been prepared on the accrual basis in accordance with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The financial statements are
presented in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards
Codification (ASC) 958 dated August 2016, and the provisions of the American Institute of Certified
Public Accountants (AICPA) "Audit and Accounting Guide for Not-for-Profit Organizations" (the
Guide).
Under the provisions of the Guide, net assets and revenues, and gains and losses are classified based on
the existence or absence of donor-imposed restrictions. Accordingly, the net assets of KSA and changes
therein are classified as follows:
Net assets without donor restrictions: Net assets that are not subject to donor-imposed restrictions
and may be expended for any purpose in performing the primary objectives of KSA. KSA's board
may designate assets without restrictions for specific operational purposes from time to time.
Net assets with donor restrictions: Net assets subject to stipulations imposed by donors, and
grantors. Some donor restrictions are temporary in nature; those restrictions will be met by actions
of KSA or by the passage of time. Other donor restrictions are perpetual in nature, whereby the donor
has stipulated the funds be maintained in perpetuity.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted
in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect
the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the
date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the
reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
KSA considers all highly liquid demand deposit accounts to be cash equivalents. These include
custodial bank deposits handled by the Kansas State University Division of Financial Services plus
cash in demand deposit accounts and certificates of deposit at other financial institutions.

K-STATE ATHLETICS, INC.
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019

Note 1: Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)


Accounts Receivable
Accounts receivable are stated at cost, and are written off when management estimates that they will
not be collected. The allowance for doubtful accounts is estimated at zero, based on a minimal history
of incurring bad debts.
Pledges Receivable
KSA reports pledges receivable expected to be collected within one year at net realizable value.
Pledges expected to be collected in future years are initially reported at fair value determined using
the discounted present value of future contributions. KSA provides an allowance for doubtful
collections, which is based upon a review of outstanding pledge receivables, historical collection
information and existing economic conditions. Pledge receivables are considered past due if they are
not received by their payment instrument due date. Delinquent pledges are written off based on
individual credit evaluation and specific circumstances of the donor.
Receivables from estates are recorded at the time KSA is notified of the death of a donor and the
amount receivable from the estate can be reasonably measured.
Inventories
Consumable athletic equipment and supplies are treated as expenditures in the period in which they
are acquired.
Investments Managed by the Kansas State University Foundation
Endowment funds and with donor restriction funds are invested in a pooled fund managed by the
Kansas State University Foundation (the Foundation). Investment earnings are allocated monthly
based on each fund participant’s and/or endowment’s pro rata share in the fund.
Investments in equity securities, mutual funds and futures contracts having a readily determinable fair
value and all debt securities are carried at fair value. Investments in pooled separate accounts, private
capital funds and hedge funds are recorded at the estimated net asset value per share, as a practical
expedient to fair value, of the investments. Closely held stock is recorded at fair value as determined
by a third-party appraiser hired by the Foundation for which KSA holds stock. KSA has elected to
record other investments consisting primarily of real estate at fair value. Investment return includes
dividend, interest and other investment income; realized and unrealized gains and losses on
investments carried at fair value; and realized gains and losses on other investments, less external and
direct internal investment expenses.
Investment return that is initially restricted by donor stipulation and for which the restriction will be
satisfied in the same year is included in net assets without donor restrictions. Other investment return
is reflected in the statements of activities with or without donor restrictions, based upon the existence
and nature of any donor or legally imposed restrictions.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019

Note 1: Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)


Investments Managed by the Kansas State University Foundation (continued)
The Foundation maintains pooled investment accounts for its and KSA’s endowments. Investment
income and realized and unrealized gains and losses from securities in the pooled investment accounts
are allocated monthly to the individual endowments based on the relationship of the fair value of the
interest of each endowment to the total fair value of the pooled investments account, as adjusted for
additions to or deductions from those accounts.
Investments Held by Trustee under Bond Indenture
Investments held under bond indenture consist of money market funds, which are carried at fair value,
and a guaranteed investment contract, which is recorded at cost.
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is charged to
expense using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of each asset. KSA’s policy is to
capitalize property and equipment over $1,000.
Buildings and related improvements constructed and financed by KSA on property owned by the
University are reported as leasehold improvements. The University recognizes these as fixed assets
on their financial statements. The University’s related depreciation expense is reported as leasehold
amortization by KSA. Affixed improvements not recognized by the University as fixed assets are
reported as fixed equipment by KSA.
The estimated useful lives for each major depreciable classification of property and equipment are as
follows:
Leasehold improvements 25 - 40 years
Equipment and furniture  10 years

In-Kind Contributions
KSA receives in-kind contributions of supplies and services from donors and others. It is the policy
of KSA to record, as contribution revenue in the financial statements, the estimated fair value of these
supplies and services received, and also to record a like amount of expense to reflect the immediate
consumption of these supplies and services. Revenue and expense related to in-kind services are only
recorded when the services received create or enhance nonfinancial assets or require specialized skills
possessed by the individuals providing the service and the service would typically need to be
purchased if not donated. For the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, $278,308 and $350,017
respectively, of in-kind supplies and services was received and consumed by KSA.

Contributions
Gifts of cash and other assets received without donor stipulations are reported as revenues and net
assets without donor restrictions. Gifts received with a donor stipulation that limits their use are
reported as revenues and net assets with donor restrictions. When a donor stipulated time restriction
ends, or purpose restriction is accomplished, net assets with donor restricted are reclassified to net
assets without donor restrictions and reported in the statement of activities as net assets released from
restrictions. Gifts having donor stipulations which are satisfied in the period the gift is received are
reported as revenue and net assets without donor restrictions.
Gifts of land, buildings, equipment and other long-lived assets are reported at estimated or appraised
values at the time of receipt as revenue and net assets without restriction unless explicit donor
stipulations specify how such assets must be used, in which case the gifts are reported as revenue and
net assets with donor restrictions. Absent explicit donor stipulations, for the time long-lived assets that
must be held, expirations of restrictions resulting in reclassification of the restricted net assets as
unrestricted net assets are reported when the long-lived assets are placed in service.
Unconditional gifts expected to be collected within one year are reported at their net realizable value.
Unconditional gifts expected to be collected in future years are initially reported at fair value,
determined using the discounted present value of estimated future cash flows technique. The resulting
discount is amortized using the level-yield method and is reported as contribution revenue.
Conditional gifts depend on the occurrence of a specified future and uncertain event to bind the
potential donor and are recognized as assets and revenue when the conditions are substantially met
and the gift becomes unconditional.
Life Settlement Contracts
KSA holds title to life settlement contracts donated to the University prior to 2008. The contributors
transferred ownership rights to KSA for the future establishment of an endowment or payment of
future premiums. Several of the contributors have pledged to continue premium payments. KSA
values the contracts at the current cash surrender value. This policy does not comply with current
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America which requires valuation at
the fair market value. The fair market value of these contracts is presumed to be significantly higher
than cash surrender value. Management and the Board of Directors have determined that the expense
of obtaining the fair market value precludes adopting a fair market valuation policy.
Compensated Absences
Vacation leave is accrued at eighteen days per year for employees with less than five years of service,
twenty-two days per year for employees with five to nine years of service, twenty-six days per year
for employees with ten to fourteen years of service and thirty days per year for employees with fifteen
or more years of service. Accrued vacation is paid upon an employee’s separation from benefits-
eligible employment up to a maximum of 176 hours for non-retirement eligible separations and 240
hours for retirement eligible separations.

Income Taxes
KSA is a not-for-profit corporation exempt from federal income taxes under Code Section 501(c)(3)
of the Internal Revenue Code. KSA has met the requirements under Code Section 501(a) and is not
required to file Form 990. However, KSA is subject to federal income tax on any unrelated business
taxable income.
KSA has adopted the application of the uncertain tax position provisions of FASB ASC 740, Income
Taxes. KSA evaluates its uncertain tax positions using the provisions of FASB ASC 450,
Contingencies. Accordingly, a loss contingency would be recognized when it is probable that a
liability has been incurred as of the date of the financial statements and the amount of the loss can be
reasonably estimated.
The amount recognized is subject to estimate and management judgment with respect to the likely
outcome of each uncertain tax position. The amount that is ultimately sustained for an individual
uncertain tax position or for all uncertain tax positions in the aggregate could differ from the amount
recognized. As of June 30, 2020, and 2019, there were no uncertain tax positions identified.

KSA is no longer subject to tax examinations by tax authorities for Forms 990, Return of Organization
Exempt from Income Tax, for fiscal years before July 1, 2016.
Transfers Between Fair Value Hierarchy Levels
Transfers in and out of Level 1 (quoted market prices), Level 2 (other significant observable inputs)
and Level 3 (significant unobservable inputs) are recognized on the date the transaction occurs.
Deferred Revenue
Deferred revenue consists of advanced payments received for special events scheduled in future fiscal
years. Revenue is recognized in the fiscal year the event occurs.
Advance Ticket Sales
Advance ticket sales represent tickets sold for future athletic events. Revenue is recognized in the
fiscal year the athletic event is held.

New Accounting Pronouncement
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, to replace a
wide range of industry-specific rules with a broad, principles-based framework for recognizing and
measuring revenue from contracts with customers. The guidance is codified at FASB ASC 606 The core
principle of the new guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to reflect the transfer of goods
and services to customers in an amount equal to the consideration the entity receives or expects to
receive. KSA has adopted this updated in 2020 under the modified retrospective method. Additionally,
KSA applied the practical expedient (i) to account for revenues with similar characteristics as a
collective group rather than individually, (ii) to not adjust the transaction price for the effects of
significant financing components (if any), and (iii) to not disclose the transaction price allocated to
unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied performance obligations as of the end of the reporting period when
the performance obligations related to contracts with an expected duration of less than one year. There
was no effect on net assets upon the adoption of the ASU.
On June 21, 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-08, Clarifying the Scope and the Accounting Guidance
for Contributions Received and Contributions Made. This standard is intended to address questions
stemming from ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), regarding its
implications on grants and contracts of not-for-profit organizations. The ASU has been applied
retrospectively to all periods presented. There was no effect on net assets upon the adoption of the
ASU.
Pending Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. The update requires a lessee to recognize
a right-of-use asset and lease liability, initially measured at the present value of the lease payments,
in its statements of financial position. The guidance also expands the required quantitative and
qualitative lease disclosures. On April 8, 2020 the FASB voted to defer the effective date of ASU
2016-02 by one additional year. The ASU is now effective for the Organization's 2022 fiscal year.

Note 4: Investments and Investment Return (continued)


In order to ensure observance of limitations and restrictions that donors may have placed on the use
of these resources, the Foundation manages the resources as separate fund accounts, according to their
nature and purpose; however, these separate accounts have been combined into appropriate accounting
classifications in the accompanying financial statements.
The Foundation invests the funds in accordance with its investment policies and procedures. The
following is a description of the investment funds held at the Foundation:
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Foundation considers all liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be
cash equivalents. Cash equivalents consist primarily of uninsured money market mutual funds and
certificates of deposit.
Endowment Pool
The Foundation’s endowment pool includes debt and equity securities for liquidity, donated assets
and real estate, as well as a managed portfolio of long-term investments.
Private capital and hedge funds are included in the endowment pool to diversify assets, provide
portfolio return enhancement and dampen volatility. Hedge fund managers run proprietary strategies
employing securities and instruments such as cash, stocks, partnerships, bonds and derivative
instruments including options, futures and swaps in various combinations, sometimes shorting various
securities and employing leverage to construct desired risk/return characteristics that are less
correlated to the major asset classes.
Information to determine the June 30, 2020 aggregate carrying amounts was not made available by
the Foundation as of the date of the independent auditor’s report. Presentation of the information is
required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
Endowment Pool Return
The Foundation’s endowment pool investment management is governed by policies and procedures
established by the Asset Management Committee, a committee of the Foundation’s Board of
Directors, in collaboration with staff and consultants. Staff implements the policies through: 1) the
selection of investment strategies; 2) the hiring, monitoring and changing of investment managers;
and 3) rebalancing the portfolios. Investment results are monitored by the committee quarterly
through manager and portfolio performance and due diligence reporting.

Note 4: Investments and Investment Return (continued)


Endowment Pool Return (continued)
The Foundation’s endowment pool strives to achieve long term capital appreciation and consistent
income by utilizing a “total return investment strategy.” The Foundation uses an inflation adjusted
distribution policy attempting to provide a stable revenue stream to the University while maintaining
intergenerational equity. The distributions from the endowment pool are calculated by adjusting the
prior year’s distribution amount annually for inflation. To avoid potential unconscionable under-
distributions or unsustainable over-distributions relative to the endowment pool market value, the
annual inflation adjusted distribution is limited to maximum and minimum total distributions to
purpose. The maximum distributions to purpose are 4.50% of market value and the minimum
distributions are 3%, both of which are calculated annually using the market value at the beginning
of the fiscal year. This action is consistent with the Foundation’s Board of Directors’ long-term
strategic plans and attempts to treat all generations equitably and protect future purchasing power.
To satisfy its long-term rate of return objectives, the Foundation relies on a total return strategy in
which investment returns are achieved through both current yield (investment income such as
dividends and interest) and capital appreciation (both realized and unrealized). The Foundation targets
a diversified asset allocation to achieve its long-term return objectives within prudent risk constraints.
Total endowment pool investment returns reported by the Foundation are as follows:

Annual Fiscal Year Returns


June 30, 2020 n/a*
June 30, 2019 6.80%
June 30, 2018 9.15%

(A) This category includes investments in pooled separate accounts which hold exchange-
traded equity securities, fixed income securities, and a multi-strategy commodities fund.
While the underlying securities in these accounts are primarily highly liquid, exchange-
traded securities, the nature of this type of account only allows for monthly liquidity at a
month end net asset value.
(B) This category includes investments in private equity and venture capital that invest
primarily in domestic and international private companies. Private capital funds are
structured as closed-end, commitment-based investment funds where a specified amount of
capital is committed upon inception of the fund which is then drawn down over a period of
three to five years, and distributions are received through the liquidation of underlying
assets of the fund. The typical term of these investments is 12-15 years. Such funds generally
do not provide redemption options for investors.
(C) This category includes investments in hedge funds that pursue multiple strategies to
diversify risks and reduce volatility. The funds’ composite portfolio includes investments in
U.S. common stocks, global real estate projects, and arbitrage investments. Certain funds
may have the ability to impose a suspension or postponement of redemptions until further
notice (a “Gate”). In addition, certain funds may delay payment of a portion of redemption
proceeds (a “Holdback”) until the annual audited financial statements are distributed.

Note 5: Disclosures About Fair Value of Assets


Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly
transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value measurements must
maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. There is a
hierarchy of three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or
liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable
or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the
assets or liabilities.
Level 3 Unobservable inputs supported by little or no market activity and are significant to the
fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Recurring Measurements
The following tables present the fair value measurements of assets and liabilities on a recurring basis
recognized in the accompanying statements of financial position and the corresponding level within
the fair value hierarchy at June 30, 2020 and 2019. Information to determine the June 30, 2020 levels
was not available from the Foundation as of the date of the audit report.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019
 

Note 5: Disclosures About Fair Value of Assets (continued)


Investments
Where quoted market prices are available in an active market, securities are classified within Level 1
of the valuation hierarchy. If quoted market prices are not available, then fair values are estimated by
using quoted prices of securities with similar characteristics or independent asset pricing services and
pricing models, the inputs of which are market-based or independently sourced market parameters,
including, but not limited to, yield curves, interest rates, volatilities, prepayments, defaults, cumulative
loss projections and cash flows. Such securities are classified in Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. In
certain cases where Level 1 or Level 2 inputs are not available, securities are classified within Level
3 of the hierarchy.
Fair value determinations for Level 3 measurements of securities, closely held stock and real estate
investments are the responsibility of management. Management obtains fair value estimates from the
investment managers or fair value specialist on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. For real estate
investments, management obtains fair value estimates from both internal and external valuation
sources, including county tax appraisals and historic comparable sales information. Management
challenges the reasonableness of the assumptions used and reviews the methodology to ensure the
estimated fair value complies with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States.

Note 6: Life Settlement Contracts


At June 30, 2020 and 2019, donors have assigned ownership of their life settlement contracts to KSA.
The face value of the assigned policies at June 30, 2020 and 2019 was $12,870,134. The cash
surrender values of these policies are $2,267,487 and $2,195,653, as of June 30, 2020 and 2019,
respectively.

Note 7: Endowment Funds


KSA follows the investment and endowment pool policies of the Foundation, a separately audited
entity. KSA has adopted the same policies for their endowments. The Foundation’s endowment pool
strives to achieve long-term capital appreciation and consistent income by utilizing a “total return
investment strategy.” The Foundation uses an inflation adjusted distribution policy attempting to
provide a stable revenue stream from KSA endowed funds while maintaining intergenerational equity.
KSA has approximately 160 individual endowment funds established for a variety of purposes that
are held and managed by the Foundation. As required by accounting principles generally accepted in
the United States of America, net assets associated with endowment funds are classified and reported
based on the existence or absence of donor-imposed restrictions. KSA, in conjunction with the
Foundation, has interpreted the State of Kansas’ Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds
Act (UPMIFA) as requiring the preservation of the fair value of the original gift as of the gift date of
the donor-restricted endowment funds, absent explicit donor stipulations to the contrary.

24
K-STATE ATHLETICS, INC.
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019
 

Note 7: Endowment Funds (continued)


As a result of this interpretation, KSA classifies amounts in its donor-restricted endowment fund as
net assets with donor restrictions until the Board of Directors appropriates amounts for expenditure
and any purpose restrictions have been met. The Board of Directors of KSA has interpreted UPMIFA
as requiring the maintenance of only the original gift amount contributed to an endowment fund,
unless a donor stipulates the contrary. As a result of this interpretation, KSA would consider the fund
to be underwater if the fair value of the fund is less than the sum of (1) the original value of initial and
subsequent gifts donated to the fund and (2) any accumulations to the fund that are required to be
maintained in perpetuity in accordance with applicable donor gift instrument. KSA has interpreted
UPMIFA to permit spending from underwater funds in accordance with prudent measures required
under the law. The fund is not currently underwater.
In accordance with UPMIFA, KSA and the Foundation considers the following factors in making a
determination to appropriate or accumulate donor-restricted endowment funds:
1. The duration and preservation of the fund;
2. The purposes of KSA and the donor-restricted endowment fund;
3. General economic conditions;
4. The possible effect of inflation and deflation;
5. The expected total return from income and the appreciation of investments;
6. Other resources of the Foundation; and
7. The investment policies of the Foundation

From time to time, the fair value of assets associated with individual donor-restricted endowment
funds may fall below the level that the donor or UPMIFA requires KSA and the Foundation to retain
as a fund of perpetual duration. In accordance with GAAP, deficiencies of this nature that are reported
in without donor restricted net assets were $40,327 and $5,368 as of June 30, 2020 and 2019,
respectively. These deficiencies resulted from unfavorable market fluctuations that occurred shortly
after the investment of new permanently restricted contributions and continued appropriation for
certain programs that was deemed prudent by KSA and the Foundation.
At June 30, 2020 and 2019, the endowment fund is composed of:
2020 2019

Amounts required to be invested in perpetuity $ 15,779,188 $ 15,675,319


Accumulated investment gains 3,314,470 3,889,110

Note 17: Related Parties


KSA, along with other University affiliates, are under common control of the State of Kansas. This
relationship is predicated by the fact that the State of Kansas owns all land used by KSA and any
purchases and/or construction of permanent real property (i.e. buildings, land and improvements) on
the land are recorded as leasehold improvements.
KSA has various transactions with the University and its affiliates for various types of goods and
services. The main revenues are for student fees that pass through the University. The majority of the
expenditures are related to student-athlete tuition and fees, as well as housing and dining fees. The
total expenditures to the University and its affiliates for the periods ending June 30, 2020 and 2019
are $22,691,151 and $10,309,588, respectively, and the total receipts were $18,928,138 and
$22,588,708, respectively.

Note 18: Subsequent Events


In December 2019, an outbreak of a novel strain of corona virus (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan,
China and has since spread to other countries, including the U.S. On March 11, 2020, the World Health
Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. In addition, multiple jurisdictions in the U.S.
have declared a state of emergency. It is anticipated that these impacts will continue for some time.
Future potential impacts may include disruptions or restrictions on KSA’s ability to operate under its
current mission and operating model.
KSA has evaluated events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure through the date of
the independent auditor’s report, which is the date the financial statements were available to be issued.
