UTSA is an educational organization. Therefore, all or part of your RAF donation—the amount that exceeds the value of any benefits you receive—may be tax deductible.
All benefits associated with each specific giving level are automatically accepted by the donor unless declined in writing to the RAF. Additionally, the benefits declined letter must be received along with the donor’s first payment toward his/her annual pledge/gift. A declining of benefits is irrevocable for the RAF calendar year. Current federal income tax law allows an 80% deduction of a contribution to educational institutions where, as a result of the contribution, the donor received preferred seating rights. Contributions that neither directly nor indirectly result in preferred seating rights may be fully deductible.
