If you choose to purchase tickets based on priority seating, in addition to making a contribution, 80% of your contribution is tax deductible. For 100% tax deductibility of your annual contribution, you must decline your right to receive any benefits at the time you make your gift. Only the individual, organization, or business making the contribution and holding priority seating status is eligible to receive the tax deduction. Major gifts or contributions not associated with ticket priority or other benefits are 100% deductible. Mountaineer Athletic Club donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes from the WVU Foundation upon receipt of their donation.
Since the Mountaineer Athletic Club operates within the West Virginia University Foundation, contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The West Virginia University Foundation, Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c) (3) organization and its tax exempt identification number is 556017181.
The Mountaineer Athletic Club encourages donors to seek their own tax and legal counsel in matters related to charitable giving.
You will receive an official gift acknowledgement from the WVU Foundation for tax reporting purposes. Please allow 2-3 weeks after you make your gift to receive your gift receipt. Gift receipts will be sent via regular mail.
Duplicate gift receipts may be requested from the WVU Foundation. Please call (304) 284-4000 to request a duplicate tax receipt.
