Galloping Gaels Fund
Help ensure that all Gael teams stay competitive by supporting scholarships, academic support and other strategic initiatives for our student-athletes.
Season Ticket Fair Market Value
As of January 1, 2018, updates to the tax law may impact the deductibility of your future contributions at athletics. It is our understanding that this new legislation amends Section 170(I) of the Internal Revenue Code to eliminate any deduction for contributions made in exchange for seating rights at collegiate athletic stadium events.
While there is still uncertainty surrounding the legislation, contributions to Saint Mary’s College Athletics that provide donors with access to season tickets will no longer be deductible.
Saint Mary's College Athletics and Recreational Sports depend on its friends for its continued success. Help us by paying attention to these guidelines to ensure our ability to operate a winning program of the highest integrity. Find out more.
