The Flames Club Annual Fund
Flames Club membership begins at just $60, with a total of eight membership levels culminating with the highest Scholarship Level ($12,000). Contributions may be unrestricted, so they may be used where needed most, or designated toward your sport of choice. Those joining the 2016 Flames Club are eligible for benefits for the 2016 football season, 2016-17 basketball season, and the 2017 baseball season. Contributions may be made by cash, check, credit card, or stock transfer; and may be paid in a lump sum or on a monthly or quarterly basis, with the balance due by December 31.
If your organization matches contributions, please forward all matching paperwork to the Flames Club to receive full recognition and benefit credit for the entire gift, including the matched portion. The Flames Club operates under Liberty University's non-profit 501(c) (3) status, and donations may be 80% tax-deductible unless the donor chooses to refuse all benefits for potential 100% deductibility, per IRS regulations (see your tax advisor).Join Now >>
