MADISON, Wis. -- The 2013 tax deduction deadline is quickly approaching! With less than a month remaining in the current calendar year, we encourage you to renew or begin your support of Badger student-athletes today.
In addition to supporting educational and athletic opportunities for over 800 Badger student-athletes in 23 varsity sports, there are a number of potential tax advantages available to those making a gift to Wisconsin Athletics.
The most convenient way to make a gift to Wisconsin Athletics is electronically at SupportTheBadgers.org. Depending on how you choose to designate your gift, your contribution would be 80% or 100% tax deductible. To make a gift electronically, please click here.
Another option to consider is a planned gift. In addition to supporting our student-athletes, there are potential significant tax advantages, particularly with appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real estate. There are also giving vehicles, such as annuities and charitable trusts, which can provide income to you along with supporting Wisconsin Athletics.
All donors who contribute by December 31, 2013, will have the first opportunity to request tickets for 2013-14 Big Ten and NCAA men's basketball tournament tickets, along with men's hockey post-season tickets. Donors to Wisconsin Athletics also receive a variety of benefits.
Please contact the Wisconsin Athletic Development Office at 608-262-1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for more information.
