(Weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). You may choose to use your credit card, banking account or payroll deduction (for UTSA staff and faculty).

  7. I make gifts to other areas in the university. Do I receive athletic benefits and Loyalty Points for those gifts?
    Contributions to other areas of UTSA do not earn Loyalty Points or other benefits involving Athletics. Loyalty Points are earned by donors who make a gift directly to UTSA Athletics. RAF benefits are earned exclusively by donors who provide gifts to the RAF.
  8. How does my donation to the RAF help my seating at away football and postseason games and other special events?
    With the move into Conference US A, UTSA fans have the opportunity to purchase tickets to away football games and postseason events involving UTSA. From time to time, there are also special offers to Roadrunner fans that might be occurring at the Alamodome, UTSA and/or surrounding venues. Seating priority for these events is based on your Loyalty Points total and if you have season tickets in the sport of the special event.
