COLLEGE ATHLETICS

Colleges and universities across the country have long relied on the generosity of alumni and donors, but new tax laws that went into effect at the beginning of this year could seriously impact the funds schools will receive in the near future. Schools raised more than $43 billion in charitable contributions in 2017, according to the latest numbers provided by the Voluntary Support of Education survey done by the Council for Aid to Education. Of the $43.6 billion raised, more than $11.37 billion came in the form of gifts from alumni and more than $7.8 billion was raised from non-alumni individuals. For some of these schools, contributions comprise a large percentage of their athletics department budgets. Based on the latest information compiled from the Knight Commission in 2014, 22 percent of the total revenue from Football Bowl Subdivision schools comes from donor contributions. – Matt Murschel, orlandosentinel.comRead More
