WAYS TO GIVE
At every giving level, the Razorback Foundation offers options to ensure the greatest benefit to both Razorback Athletics and you, our valued member.
There is no better way to support Razorback Athletics than to make donations to the Razorback Foundation Annual Fund. There are five Annual Funds for baseball, football, men's basketball, men's Olympic sports and women's sports. Annual Fund donations are pivotal to determining each member's rank in the Razorback Priority Points Program.
In 2013, we implemented a new annual Letter of Intent to streamline the giving process. This form allows you to indicate your total expected contribution to all sports during each calendar year. The Letter of Intent is available to members each January through the March 31 deadline.
Capital gifts are contributions made outside your Annual Fund donation and play a pivotal role in the enhancement, construction and maintenance of first-class athletic facilities. Top-notch facilities are not just important for recruiting the nation’s best and brightest student-athletes, but also equip them with the best tools to pursue their scholastic and athletic goals. Several naming opportunities are available.
Corporate Matching Gifts
To be eligible, your company must match collegiate athletic funds. You may submit your request online through your company’s website or obtain a matching gift form from your employer. Complete the employee section of the form and submit it with your contribution. Your portion of the gift must meet the required seat values and be paid in full when you submit your matching gift request.
Gifts of Real Property or Securities
Real property and securities are welcomed gifts and may provide the member with significant tax benefits. Members receive a tax deduction based on the value of the stock or property on the day it was received by the Razorback Foundation. Please contact the Razorback Foundation prior to making a gift of real property or securities.
The Endowed Scholarship Program within the Razorback Foundation allows a member to provide for the future of our student-athletes. An endowment provides a perpetual source of financial support for athletic scholarships.
The Razorback Foundation accepts gifts-in-kind; however, all such donations must be approved in advance and generally do not apply to the Annual Fund.
Deferred gifts through wills, bequests and trusts can also provide the needed funds to help Razorback Athletics. Special benefit rules apply to gifts of a deferred nature.
In lieu of flowers, you may suggest that gifts be made to the Razorback Foundation in memory of friends and loved ones.
Sponsoring various events, including the annual Sports Hall of Honor and Red Tie Dinner and Auction, offers a great way to support the Razorback Foundation outside of your Annual Fund gifts.
Please contact the Foundation for more giving information.
