Ways To Give
The Friar Forever Athletic Fund provides support for the Providence College Athletic Department and student-athletes through various avenues, including contributions to the annual fund, endowments, matching gifts and planned giving. Providence College is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization. Any amount of your donation that results in priority event seating is 80% tax deductible. All other contributions are 100% tax deductible unless otherwise specified by IRS regulations. The following are methods of giving and gift destinations:
Annual Cash Donations:
Cash, check, and Visa/MasterCard/American Express transactions are the most common forms of annual support.
Gifts of Investment:
Appreciated securities, real property or tangible personal assets are accepted by the Friars Forever Athletic Fund and Providence College.
Many companies match employee contributions. Gift credit is given for your personal donation and the company's matching gift.
Contributions of product, merchandise, equipment, or services are often provided in support of the Athletic Department. These gifts may satisfy priority seating requirements. Gift-in-kind donations must receive approval from the Friars Forever Athletic Fund and are reviewed on a yearly basis.
Capital Project Donations:
These gifts count towards a donor's overall seating priority points.
Endowments offer a donor the opportunity to sustain a family name in perpetuity.
The Friars Forever Athletic Fund accepts planned gifts through wills and bequests.
Life Income Gifts:
Charitable trusts or gift annuities allow a donor to make a major gift while retaining an income for a fixed period of time or for life.
Seat Licensing Contributions:
Prime season ticket holders at the Dunkin Donuts Center for our PC Men's Basketball program require a seat licensing fee that supports athletic facilities improvements at Providence College. In order to compete at the highest level in the Big East we must consistently improve the student-athlete experience at PC. The licensing fee is 80% tax deductible based on IRS law.
