Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between "unrestricted" and "restricted" gifts?
An "unrestricted" gift to Aztec Athletics is one which is used to cover the educational
expenses of SDSU student-athletes. Priority seating contributions are "unrestricted". A
"restricted" gift is designated by the donor for a specific purpose, often through a sport
specific group such as the Full Court Press Club, or RBI Club.
What is the Director's Cabinet?
The Director's Cabinet is an exclusive group of business and civic leaders committed
to the success of Aztec Athletics through private gifts. DC members are entitled to
exclusive benefits and activities. Membership requires a $30,000 annual donation, tax
deductible minus benefits received.
Does my unrestricted gift to the Aztec Club qualify me for priority seating
in Qualcomm Stadium and Viejas Arena?
Yes! An unrestricted gift to the Aztec Club at a giving level associated with priority
seating benefits will qualify you for priority seating in designated areas of Qualcomm
Stadium and/or Viejas Arena. Required donations vary by seating location and number
of seats desired.
Is my gift to Aztec Athletics tax deductible?
Yes! The amount of your deduction equals the gift minus the value of membership
benefits received. To qualify for tax deduction that is equal to the full amount of your
donation, you must decline all benefits.
Gifts made in association with priority seating benefits are subject to the 1988 Tax Law,
allowing for 80% deduction after value of all benefits received is subtracted from the
original gifts. We recommend you consult with a tax advisor regarding the deductibility
of your gift in relation to tickets purchased and benefits received.
The Aztec Club is the fundraising arm of SDSU Athletics. Gifts in support of the Aztec Club's
mission will be administered by The Campanile Foundation (TCF). TCF is the 501 (c) 3 non profit organization for San Diego State University.
