Gifts that qualify for a full income tax deduction are those not associated with the right to purchase tickets for seating at university athletics events. This includes gifts made to capital projects, other special projects, athletics department operations, endowments, and the Annual Fund, where donors waive their rights to benefits.

According to current IRS regulations, gifts that are not tax-deductible are those that provide the right to purchase tickets for university athletics events. In addition, per-seat commitments, or suite lease commitments associated directly with home seating benefits may not be tax-deductible.

Please consult with your tax advisor for more information about the tax implications of your donation.
