White level: $100, plus a $25 Preferred Seat gift.

Preferred Seat Gifts not only help support UAlbany’s more than 450 student-athletes, but also include benefits such as parking, access to exclusive hospitality areas and priority to purchase postseason tickets.
Your Preferred Seat Fund contribution is not deductible for income tax purposes. Following the passage of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (“Tax Reform Act”), changes were made to IRC 170(l) eliminating the 80 percent charitable deduction previously allowed for gifts associated with premium seating. You are encouraged to consult your tax advisor for applicability of IRS regulations.
