Any contribution that entitles the donor to purchase tickets is 80% deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes, according to IRS Code Section 170 (I). In addition, any contribution is reduced by the fair market value of all goods and services a donor receives in exchange for the gift, and no part of the amount paid to purchase tickets is deductible as a charitable contribution. Individuals who make a contribution to the Villanova Athletic Fund will be issued an appropriate tax receipt by Villanova University. The Villanova Athletic Fund recommends that you consult with your tax advisor to determine the amount that may be deductible. Contributions to the Villanova Athletic Fund entitle the donor to certain benefits. If you desire 100% tax deductibility for your gift directed towards the Villanova Athletic Fund, you must decline your right to receive any benefits in writing at the time you make your contribution.
