Waive Benefits

Changes in U.S. tax law provide that contributions are non-deductible if a donor “receives (directly or indirectly) as a result of paying such amount the right to purchase tickets for seating at an athletic event in an athletic stadium of such institution.” The USD Foundation’s Board of Directors has determined that Howling Pack contributions that result in membership benefits are non-deductible transactions and will be processed accordingly. Howling Pack donors who elect to waive membership benefits will preserve the charitable nature of their contributions. Donors are encouraged to seek professional counsel to understand the tax consequences of their giving.

If you are interested in preserving the charitable nature of your contribution while positively impacting the lives of our student-athletes, you can opt to waive the benefits of your gift.

Waive Benefits


The Howling Pack is the annual fundraising program of the Athletic Department at the University of South Dakota. The Howling Pack promotes and financially supports the USD Athletic Department and all Coyote athletic teams, while encouraging the development of the student-athlete.

Gifts made to the Howling Pack are used for program enrichment and to fund scholarships for University of South Dakota student-athletes. Scholarships help student-athletes with costs such as tuition/fees, meals, housing, books/supplies, transportation and personal expenses.
