The UConn Club Benefits and Donor Levels
Any donor contributing $100 or more annually to any sport, endowment, capital project, or entity that supports the Division of Athletics is automatically a member of The UConn Club and is eligible to receive member benefits.
Many donors have stated that the greatest benefit of a philanthropic gift is the satisfaction of providing deserving student-athletes with an opportunity to obtain a great education while participating in athletics at one of the nation's finest public universities. Additional benefits may include mailings, emails, invitations to UConn Club events and other items according to one's membership category.

Please note, the fair market value of benefits made available to a donor as a result of the contribution must be deducted from the gift amount to determine the charitable amount eligible for income tax deduction.
The Division of Athletics uses a priority point system in a effort to fairly allocate seats to current donors. The system is designed to acknowledge both consistent annual giving (through retention of permanent points) and current year giving (through bonus points).
Annual pledges/donations earn three types of priority points: permanent points, bonus points (for non-football/basketball seat donations), and membership points.
1 permanent point is earned for every $100 pledged/donated to UConn Athletics. Permanent points are awarded for football and basketball seat donations. Permanent points accrue and are cumulative.
1 bonus point is earned for every $100 pledged/donated to UConn Athletics. Bonus points are temporary for the pledge year only (not cumulative). Bonus points are not awarded on a football or basketball seat donation.
2 membership points are earned each pledge year (with a minimum annual donation of $100). Membership points accrue and are cumulative.
Example: A new member making a $5000 pledge/donation in a pledge year, based on the priority point calculation formula:
$5,000 Pledge/Donation Yields:
50 Permanent points
50 Bonus points (not for football/basketball seat donations)
2 membership points
102 Total priority points earned for the pledge year; and 52 points will carry forward into the new pledge year.
