Annual memberships come with many benefits (e.g. Ticket and Parking Priority). Ticket and parking priority varies by level with the higher level receiving greater priority.
Annual memberships provide funds (over $13 million) to support the overall athletics budget for all 20 Men’s and Women’s sports, including scholarships, medical services, academic support and more.
Annual Fund memberships are annual (not prorated) and are renewed at the beginning of each year (or end of the prior year to take advantage of a full 12-month payment plan). The Annual Fund gift policy states 50% of the membership pledge is to be paid by June 1st of the current year and the remaining by October 31st in order to receive full priority benefits. If you have questions about levels or benefits, select the link below or call us at 850-644-1830, option 3.
Please note as of January 1, 2018, donors may no longer claim a tax deduction for amounts paid to or for the benefit of a college or university for which in return they receive the right to purchase tickets or seating at an athletic event in the university’s stadium. Please reference the priority-seating map for the required per seat payment associated with football tickets.
We’ve established a separate “Annual Fund Membership” with similar benefits minus Home Ticket Priority. All members who do not purchase season tickets will be placed under the “Athletic Excellence Fund” which is tax deductible to which the law allows.
Please consult your tax advisor about any tax impact and before claiming any deduction.
