Tax Information

All contributions to Wisconsin Athletics are considered gifts to the University of Wisconsin and are credited at full value for purposes of the donor's gift record at the University of Wisconsin Foundation. A contribution that entitles the donor to purchase tickets is 80 percent deductible as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes, according to IRS Code, Section 170(l). In addition, the IRS has ruled the 80 percent portion of your contribution is only tax deductible to the extent that it exceeds the value of any additional benefits you receive.
