Make a Gift

The TCU Frog Club provides you with the opportunity to designate your contribution to TCU Athletics to the area of your choice. As a TCU Athletics benefactor, you help provide for the future of our athletics program. Below are a number of ways in which you can provide meaningful financial support to TCU Athletics that will directly benefit TCU student-athletes.

Unrestricted Gift

Unrestricted gifts to the TCU Frog Club are vital to the success of TCU Athletics. These dollars go directly toward providing financial support for scholarships for more than 500 student-athletes and count toward annual Frog Club membership.

Donor Football Parking

The best game day parking for TCU football games is offered through the Frog Club! Donation levels range from $200 to $2,500 for general and reserved lots per season. All gifts are tax deductible and count toward annual Frog Club membership.

Endowed Athletic Scholarship Gift

Making a gift towards an endowed athletic scholarship is a fantastic way to provide scholarship support for our student-athletes. For more information on endowed giving, creating an endowed scholarship or the various endowed athletic scholarships currently in existence, please contact the TCU Frog Club Office at 817.257.7700.

Club Seating and Scholarship Seating Program

Enjoy TCU Football from the best seats in the house! Both the Club Seating Program and the Scholarship Seating Program offer fans the opportunity to view home football games from premium designated areas inside Amon G. Carter Stadium. Gifts made to either program help fund scholarships for TCU student-athletes.

Gift-in-Kind

A gift-in-kind is a contribution of tangible property such as products, equipment, or merchandise in place of a cash donation to the TCU Frog Club. These gifts provide budgetary relief for the intercollegiate athletics department and may provide tax relief and other benefits to donors. All gift-in-kind pledges much be approved by the TCU Frog Club before qualifying for benefits. Click here to fill out the gift-in-kind form and return to the TCU Frog Club.

IRA Charitable Rollover

IRA charitable rollover gifts may not be used to maintain or improve a donor's standing in the priority points system. While an IRA charitable rollover gift can be made to Athletics, the donor is not permitted to receive any priority points or other privileges in exchange for the gift. Otherwise, the gift will not be a qualified IRA charitable rollover.

A charity may not provide any goods or services in return for an IRA charitable rollover gift. If donors receive any goods or services (e.g., tickets to a fundraiser) that would have reduced their charitable deduction had they made an outright gift to the charity, the rollover of assets from an IRA will not qualify for the tax-free treatment under this provision. Gifts to the donor that are disregarded (i.e., public recognition, token gifts, and insubstantial benefits) will not disqualify the contribution from the tax-free treatment. IRS Publication 1771, Charitable Contributions--Substantiation and Disclosure Requirements contains information about disregarded benefits.

Benefits that a donor can receive for IRA charitable rollover gifts: The only permissible benefits from an IRA charitable rollover gift are those that would not reduce the tax deduction for which the donor would have otherwise qualified.

Student Frog Club

The Student Frog Club is a student philanthropy group that was formed in 2013 with the premise of educating current students on the mission, motives and benefits of the TCU Frog Club. Student Frog Club membership requires a $25 minimum annual gift.

Amon G. Carter Legacy Brick Program

Become a permanent part of the TCU Football tradition by having your name etched into the east entrance of Amon G. Carter Stadium. By making a gift of $150 you can have a personal message engraved on a 4" by 8" brick. All bricks are installed at the east side entrance near Frog Alley. Please click here for more information.

Sports Specific Groups

There are ways you can directly support some of our sports teams here at TCU. The TCU Men's Fast Break Club & Women's Fast Break Club (basketball), The Diamond Club (baseball), Corner Kick Club (soccer) and Purple Hooves (equestrian) all offer exclusive benefits such as parking and other unique access to their respective sports. Please contact the Frog Club for more information.

* IRS regulations restrict the receipt of benefits for certain types of charitable giving (see IRC Section 4941: "Private Foundations: Taxes on Self-Dealing" and IRC Section 4967: "Donor-Advised Funds: Taxes on Prohibited Benefits"), therefore contributions made from a tax-exempt private foundation, corporate foundation, charitable trust, or donor advised fund are not eligible to receive benefits.
