ASSIST WITH THE EDUCATION OF A STUDENT-ATHLETE
Longhorn Foundation donors contribute to the future success of all University of Texas student- athletes. Thanks to the generous support of donors each year, over 500 student-athletes can take advantage of numerous opportunities both on and off the field, while receiving one of the nation's finest educations. Longhorn Foundation contributors help ensure that The University of Texas continues to be one of the premier academic and athletic institutions in the country.
Current federal income tax law allows donors an 80% charitable deduction on a contribution to educational institutions, where, as a result of such contribution, donors receive preferred seating rights for Texas athletics events.
OPPORTUNITY TO SIGN UP FOR LONGHORN SCOREBOARD E-NEWSLETTER
The Longhorn Scoreboard is an informational newsletter that is emailed at least once a month that includes special occasions and promotions. Get to know the Longhorns by reading about your favorite UT student-athletes, teams and coaches, past and present. Longhorn Foundation news is also sent via the Longhorn Scoreboard letting fans know about different opportunities and ticket order deadlines.
SEASON TICKET OPPORTUNITY: Football, Volleyball, Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball, Baseball, Softball
Donors may order as many season tickets as they would like for any sport. Season ticket location assignments are based upon availability, the donor's location request, and annual donation total (lifetime giving total is used as a tie-breaker). Season ticket seat locations are based on a per seat donation. Per seat amounts are determined by taking a donor's entire annual donation and dividing that amount by the number of season tickets ordered. Many scenarios may be considered, so please call The Longhorn Foundation at (512)471-4439 for further details. We cannot release seat location information until season tickets are in the mail. Seats are only transferable to a surviving spouse. Contributions and ticket payments must be made by the donor of record.
AWAY GAMES, TEXAS-OU, and POSTSEASON TICKETS
A donor's annual donation and lifetime giving totals determine eligibility and seating for away games, postseason events, and the Texas-OU football game in Dallas. All current donors must make their annual donation by March 1 to receive priority on away game tickets, including TX/OU. All donors (current and brand new) must also purchase season tickets and any away game tickets (including TX/OU) by the football season ticket order deadline, which is April 30, 2013. Donor demand and ticket allotments received for certain games may limit the number of tickets donors are allowed to request.
TICKET MARKETPLACE AND STUBHUB
Ticket Marketplace, in partnership with StubHub, benefits Football and Men's Basketball season ticket holders by allowing customers to sell their tickets to games that they are unable to attend. By creating a Ticket Marketplace account, season ticket locations automatically link to the StubHub website where customers may buy and sell tickets at their convenience. If posted seats sell, StubHub will send a notification that the current seats are now void and payment will be processed. If purchasing home game seats, StubHub will send a notification that the transaction was approved and the tickets are now available with the print at home option.
Ticket Transfer benefits Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball, and Baseball season ticket holders by allowing customers to email their tickets to games that they are unable to attend to family and friends. This option provides an easy way for season ticket holders to share their tickets efficiently to ensure someone is always using their seats. The Ticket Transfer program does not apply to the transferring of season tickets tied to a Longhorn Foundation donation or general public season ticket purchase on a permanent basis from one customer to another.
Due to limited space, priority parking privileges for Football, Baseball, Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball, Softball, and Volleyball are reserved only for donors who have season tickets for those sports. Longhorn Foundation donors with a minimum annual gift of $600 are eligible to receive one parking permit for all sports in which they purchase season tickets.
