Contributions may be unrestricted, so that they can be used where needed most, or designated toward your specific sport of choice. Those joining the 2013 Flames Club will be eligible for benefits for the 2013 football season, 2013-14 basketball season, and the 2014 baseball season. Contributions may be submitted in person at the Flames Club Office, by mail, or online at LibertyFlames.com/FlamesClub. Payments 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).
The easiest way for current members to earn Loyalty Points and to help grow support for Liberty Flames Athletics is to refer new members to the Flames Club. Everyone wins as the referring member enjoys enhanced points for seating and parking privileges, the new member enjoys participation in the Flames Club, and Liberty Athletics enjoys additional financial support. For more information, see the Loyalty Points page of this brochure.
Deferred gifts can enable donors to support Liberty University Athletics in a greater capacity than they may have thought possible, and some gift types can provide current income to the donor and/or tax benefits. Some of the deferred gift options include charitable gift annuities, will bequests, life insurance gifts, and various types of charitable trusts. Contact the Flames Club for more information on deferred gift options.
