Goods and Services Offered:

FOR NON-ATHLETICS CONTRIBUTIONS: No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution.

ATHLETICS CONTRIBUTIONS ONLY: If your gift entitles you to purchase tickets in priority seating areas at University of Kentucky athletic events, only 80% of the total amount of your net charitable contribution is tax deductible under Internal Revenue Code ยง 170(I). However, if you elect not to receive these benefits, then your donation may be 100% tax deductible. The fair market value of additional benefits received (if any) in connection with this gift is not tax deductible.

In all cases, the University of Kentucky recommends that you consult with and rely upon the advice of your tax professional regarding the deductibility of your gift.

The University of Kentucky is a tax-exempt organization because it is an agency and instrumentality of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Charitable contributions to the University are deductible by donors because the University of Kentucky is an educational organization pursuant to Section 170(b)(1)(A)(ii) and a government agency pursuant to Section 170(b)(1)(A)(v) of the Internal Revenue Code, when contributions are made to it in furtherance of its public mission of education, research and service.

Delivery Standards:

Shortly after a gift transaction is processed, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail. You are advised to retain a copy of that email for your records as this is your official tax receipt.

Refund Policy:

If you believe that an error has been made in connection with your online donation, contact the Office of Philanthropy by phone at (859) 257-3911 or (800) 875-6272 or by email at We will work with you to correct any error, and if necessary, process a refund or correction that is appropriate. In all cases, a refund will only be returned to the original credit card charged. Tax receipts for refunded amounts will immediately become null and void.
