GIFTS OF SECURITIES
Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. are accepted in partnership with the Northern Illinois University Foundation.
Contributions received for NIU Athletics will be processed upon receipt. Contributions made for annual priority seating benefits will be credited to the ticket holder on record. However, the individual making the contribution will have their gift processed and tax receipt issued by the NIU Foundation.
Premium Seat Payment(s): Formerly termed "Seat Contributions(s)". As of January 1, 2018, payments made to the Huskie Athletic Fund for the purpose of purchasing premium seats are no longer tax deductible. This change comes after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law in December of 2017. It is important to note that all monies related to premium seat payments still benefit athletic department operations and our student-athletes – it is simply no longer tax deductible. All other gifts made to the Huskie Athletic Fund, including Campaign to Sustain, sport-specific, cost of attendance, gift-in-kind, endowments, etc. will remain tax deductible. HAF will still count these dollars toward your Annual Giving Level and your benefits!
WAIVER OF BENEFITS
For 100% tax deductibility of your contribution you must decline your right to receive any benefits at the time you make your contribution.
