FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should I donate to the Cougar Club?

By contributing to the Cougar Club you are helping to provide scholarship support for our student-athletes here at the College of Charleston. Additionally donors also receive tangible benefits, which are dependent on their donor level. Benefits include, but are not limited to, premium seating for sporting events, parking, and hospitality privileges for Men’s Basketball, and special events throughout the year.

Is my gift to the Cougar Club tax deductible?

Yes, gifts to the Cougar Club are 80% tax deductible. Should you choose to decline ALL donor benefits, including priority seating, your gift is 100% tax deductible.

Are payment plans available?

Yes, payment plans are available to donors who wish to spread their payments over time. Payment plans must be paid in full by May 31st of the giving year in order for the donor to remain eligible for their priority seating, and to be considered a Cougar Club member in good standing.

Is the cost of my men’s basketball season tickets included in my gift?

No, although your gift to the Cougar Club determines which seating locations you are eligible for, it does not include season ticket cost. Men’s basketball season tickets can be purchased separately at the College of Charleston Box Office or by phone at 843.953.2632. The deadline to pay for your season tickets will be later than the deadline to make your gift to the Cougar Club.

How does sport specific giving affect my Cougar Club rank?

Donations to specific teams help members improve their Cougar Club rank, within the membership level to which they donate.
