I'm excited to see the finished project. I think it will add a lot to the already good atmosphere at Faurot.

Do people who donate to stadiums like this get a tax write off? It seems giving to a sports team shouldn’t get a break for donors.

Personal seat license payments for season tickets are no longer tax-deductible, but I don't know if other sorts of donations to athletic departments still are.

Given that the only one I heard about was this specific change, I suspect that everything else that previously was tax-deductible still is.

I could be wrong, but I think it depends on if you get a benefit from the donation. It used to be that these donations were 80% deductible if you receive priority seating, team access, a mug, etc. Now, I think they require you to fully waive all "rewards" for the donation to get a tax benefit.
