Program Policies

  •  Any required annual giving for the BEAR PLUS program will be credited toward your giving to the Mercer Athletic Foundation for that fiscal year.
  •  BEAR PLUS program required gifts must be received, not pledged, before the deadline of April 30 each year.
  •  Parking location is determined through gifts to the Mercer Athletic Foundation. A gift of $2,500 qualifies for MAF level parking and a gift of $1,000 qualifies for Preferred level parking.
  •  Bear Plus gifts also qualify for general Athletic Foundation benefits.
  •  Because your contribution includes access to parking, a benefit equal to the cost of general parking will be reflected on your tax receipt letter as not tax deductible. Only the individual or company making the gift is eligible to take the tax deduction.
Gifts to the Mercer Athletic Foundation are tax deductible (minus benefits).
Matching gifts may be used to reach giving level.
