Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for my credit card charges to begin?

Depending on which options you choose, your card will be charged on the day you pledge and recurring charges will begin on the 1st, 15th or current day of the following period. For example, if you pledge $40 per month on the 12th of July and you choose the option for recurring payments to be made on the 15th, then the first gift will be made on July 12 and the next gift will be made on August 15.

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

The University of West Florida Foundation has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as fully qualified to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions solely in support of UWF. We will send you a receipt every January stating your total contributions from the previous year and the fair-market-value of any thank-you gifts you received during that calendar year. Gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. As with any gift, you should consult your financial planner or tax adviser to determine the exact tax advantages the gift you are considering.
