Tax Deduction Information

Pursuant to Internal Revenue Service Guidelines, your gift is 80% tax deductible and will be a part of your giving record to the North Carolina Central University. A gift receipt will be sent itemizing your charitable contributions.

New season ticket requests for football are based upon availability and level of contribution.


Matching Gift Information

If your employer offers a matching gift program, both you and our NCCU student-athletes benefit. Most employers will match your charitable contribution to the NCCU Foundation dollar for dollar or even two for one (minus the value of the benefits received).

“For example, a gift of $2,500 qualifies a donor at the gray level. But, a one-to-one matching gift would bring your gift total to $5,000, moving your contribution to the Bald Eagle level, where donors receive an additional all-access pass, an invitation to the donor reception, and athletics special events.

*$2,500 minus $(the value of benefits of the net gift) plus the original $2,500.
