Free Athletic Tickets - Early Access for Donors

  • 1.  Free Athletic Tickets - Early Access for Donors

    Posted 23 days ago
    Good morning, 
    Our athletics team wants to offer our athletics supporters early access for our rivalry spring football game.  They have waived a fee for entrance because of the decreased number of allowed fans and that the game is now being played in the spring. Can they offer early access to free tickets or is this still considered a benefit?

    Not only is that a benefit, but thanks to the IRS rule changes a couple of years ago, any donations that result in preferred seating rights are not tax-deductible at all.
