“The Team Behind The Teams!”

The mission of Gator Boosters, Inc. is to strengthen the
University of Florida’s athletic program by encouraging private
giving and volunteer leadership from Gators everywhere.

Gator Boosters is dedicated to two major goals.

First and foremost is to educate our student-athletes. We provide scholarship funding to pay the academic costs for all of our scholarship athletes, providing them with one of the finest educations available anywhere.

Secondly, we are constantly building or improving our athletic facilities. We are very appreciative and proud of the commitment of our membership to provide Gator student-athletes with the opportunity to compete in one of the best overall groups of athletic facilities anywhere.

Policies

Matching

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift.

Effective as of 2008, all contributions provided by the Matching Company in regards to tickets must be submitted to the Gator Booster offices no later than the season ticket ordering deadline. For more information on Matching, please contact Debbie Adams at 352-375-4683 x 5037 or click here to email her.

Matching gifts must be made payable to Gator Boosters Inc.

Donor Advised Funds

The IRS prohibits us from accepting gifts from donor advised funds for annual booster contributions because a taxpayer could otherwise easily obtain a 100% charitable contribution for a deduction for a payment that should only qualify for an 80% deduction. The entire amount of a gift to a donor advised fund qualifies as a charitable contribution. Only 80% of a gift to a college or university that provides the donor with the right to obtain priority seating at intercollegiate athletic events qualifies as a charitable contribution.
