Your gifts make it possible to transform lives at IMG Academy and beyond. All donations go directly to scholarship programs for student-athletes looking for a chance to make their dreams a reality.
The IMG Academy Student-Athlete Foundation., is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Donors may deduct contributions as provided in IRC 170(c)(3) of the U.S. Tax Code.
There are various ways that you can support future student-athletes. Below are a just a few options:
Annual gifts to the Ascender Council provide ongoing support to meet the immediate financial
needs of our student-athletes. Every dollar donated to the Ascender Council shapes a student-athlete’s future by making a direct impact.
When you make a gift, you join alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, staff and businesses who support the Foundation each year. When aggregated, these individual gifts positively impact many deserving student-athletes.
Endowments through the Visionary Society support deserving student-athletes but instead of impacting only one person, the donor’s gift is preserved in perpetuity through an investment. When an endowment is established, the funds are invested and only the income from the investment is used to support its purpose. This preserves the donor’s original gift in perpetuity, guaranteeing they will have an impact on the Foundation for generations to come.
Endowments can be established in the donor’s name, the name of the donor’s business, or in honor of someone important to the donor. Donors also can specify how they would like the income from the endowment to be used. The IMG Academy Student-Athlete Foundation works with each donor to prepare guidelines for the administration of each named endowed fund. Guideline length and degree of specificity depend upon the donor’s wishes and particular circumstances.
