About the Cardinal & White
Cardinal & White is a major-gift society of the Razorback Foundation designed to formalize support of facility construction and renovations, student-athlete development opportunities, scholarships and other operations of the Athletic Department designed to enhance the student-athlete experience. Gifts made to Cardinal & White are philanthropic in nature and are not associated with seating or parking benefits.
Through the generosity of our loyal members, Cardinal & White will help develop and sustain the Athletic Department of the University of Arkansas by providing world-class educational opportunities, such as endowments and scholarships, as well as athletic facilities, such as the existing plans for the J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Baseball Development Center, the Frank O'Mara Track and Field High-Performance Center and renovations to the Randal Tyson Indoor Track Center.
Cardinal & White is simply formalizing a process that has been in place within the Razorback Foundation for giving towards specific capital projects or philanthropically to support our Razorback student-athletes.
A gift to Cardinal & White is a philanthropic donation that supports the mission of the Razorback Foundation and Razorback Athletics. In addition, Cardinal & White members receive invitations to exclusive events with coaches and staff, and specially designed Cardinal & White apparel. Benefits include facility naming opportunities, pre-game sideline access for home games, travel with certain teams, and more depending on the gift.
Gifts to Cardinal & White are philanthropic and will be used to support numerous student-athlete scholarships, programs and initiatives along with several upcoming facility projects. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide access to priority seating and parking for Razorback sporting events.
The Annual Fund remains the priority seating and parking fund that has been vital to supporting Razorback student-athletes for decades.
No. Gifts to Cardinal & White are independent of existing Annual Fund donation requirements for seating and parking benefits.
Yes, if you decline to accept priority points for your gift to Cardinal & White your gift is generally eligible for tax-deduction less the fair market value of any benefits associated with your gift. Please consult your tax professional.
You have the option to accept or decline priority points.
Gifts may be paid in full or the Razorback Foundation team will work with you to create up to a five-year payment schedule. Members may contribute towards their pledge monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Please note the priority points (if accepted) will only be awarded for payments received, not pledges.
Cardinal & White membership is awarded for five years.
Membership begins with the receipt of at least 10% of the pledge, once a payment plan is in place or if the entire gift is paid in full.
Should there be a lapse in payment, benefits will be suspended until the gift is up-to-date based on the pre-arranged payment plan.
The Razorback Foundation welcomes gifts from donor advised or community funds. However, the donor is generally unable to accept the priority points option or a gift receipt if his/her donation is made from one of these funds. Please consult your tax professional.
