Priority Seating

Thank you for your interest in supporting one of the Priority Seating Funds of the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation. Our coaches, staff, and most importantly our student-athletes are grateful for your continued support.

Information on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

The recently passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act may affect part of your donations for the 2018-19 year. Previously, Internal Revenue Code section 170(l) allowed for an 80% charitable deduction for donations given resulting in a right to purchase seating in athletic venues. The new tax bill has eliminated this charitable deduction. This change is effective January 1, 2018. Donations made for seating before December 31, 2017 follow the previously effective tax law in place and receive charitable contribution credit for tax deduction purposes. Although the allowance for deductibility has changed in 2018, the priority seating programs in our venues and the per-seat donation amounts will remain consistent for the 2018-2019 sports year.

Donations to the Annual Fund above and beyond the priority seating amounts will continue to be treated as 80% charitable, as these are not tied to your seating purchases.
