Frequently Asked Questions

How does the CGA Affect current Seating in Vaught Hemingway Stadium?

All season ticket holders who currently sit in a Capital Gift Agreement (CGA) section will be required to sign and fulfill a CGA in order to retain their seats for the 2015-2024 seasons. CGA Sections include: South Suites, West Skyboxes, Rebel Club, South Club, West Chairbacks, Sideline Chairbacks, East Benchbacks, E, O, D, and F. People who choose not to participate in the Forward Together program will be placed on a special allocation list for non-CGA sections in order to reward our loyal season ticket holders.

Examples:

Donor #1 has 4 seats in Section O which require a per-seat capital gift of $1,000. By signing the Capital Gift Agreement, Donor #1 is making a pledge of $4,000 (4 x $1,000 CGA per-seat) towards the Forward Together campaign that can be satisfied over a 3 year period. Donor #1 will be expected to complete their entire gift by July of 2013 with equaly payments of 33% in 2013, 2014, and 2015. In addition to the capital gift, Donor #1 will still be required to make the annual per-seat contribution of at least $250 towards the football priority seating fund (4 x $250 = $1,000 total) in addition to purchasing his/her tickets. As always, football renewal information will be sent out in late February. When the CGA has been satisfied in full by the 2015 season, Donor #1 will then simply donate the per-seat contribution of $400 per-seat ($1,600 for 4), and purchase their season tickets for the 2015-2024 season, with the guarantee that donation prices will not change from the 2015-2024.  As always, donations are tax deductible.

By signing the Capital Gift Agreement, Donor #2 is making a pledge of $9,000 (3 x $3,000 CGA per-seat) towards the Forward Together campaign that can be satisfied over a 3 year period. Donor #2 will be expected to contribute 33% of $9,000 (or $3,000) each year for 2013, 2014 and 2015. In addition to the capital gift, Donor #2 will still be required to donate the annual per-seat contribution of at least $1,100 towards the Football Priority Seating Fund ($3,300 total for 3 seats) in addition to purchasing season tickets.

What am I committing to by signing the CGA and when are the donations due?
