Membership & Benefits
Catamount Club donor level is based on a donor's cumulative annual giving during the Catamount Club fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). These levels are used to determine Catamount Club benefits for athletic events and other special events.
All contributions to the Catamount Club are made payable to the Western Carolina University Foundation. The Western Carolina University Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that has qualified as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. The WCU Foundation's goal is to aid the university in its development as a leading educational institution.
However, a contribution to the Catamount Club which entitles the donor to priority assignment of football or basketball tickets and parking is 80 percent deductible for income tax purposes according to Internal Code, Section 170(m). The Catamount Club urges you to consult with your tax advisor to determine the tax deduction for your gift.
