Tax Implications
All contributions to the 49er Club are considered gifts to the Charlotte 49ers Athletic Foundation and are credited at full value for purposes of the member's University gift record.

However, a contribution to the 49er Club which entitles the donor to priority assignment of men's basketball season tickets is 80 percent deductible for income tax purposes, according to Internal Revenue Code, Section 170 (l).

In addition, the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that this 80 percent portion of your gift is only tax deductible to the extent that it exceeds the value of the benefits you receive. The Athletic Foundation has estimated the fair market value of the benefits described in this brochure and this information is available upon request.
