What is Donor Based Seating?


The Flynn Fund Donor Based Seating & On-Campus Parking program rewards BC Athletics donors with access to season ticket options in premier seat locations for football and basketball. In addition, donors can access parking in some of the most desirable lots with close proximity to the stadium. BC Eagle fans interested in access are asked to make a gift to the Flynn Fund in alignment with the greater of their preferred seat section in the stadium or their desired parking location.

Here's How it Works

  1. Identify where you would like obtain season tickets in Alumni Stadium or Conte Forum

  2. Decide where you would like to park

  3. Make a gift to the Flynn Fund at or above the anticipated minimum for your desired locations by May 31st and purchase your season tickets

  4. Select parking in July*

  5. Season tickets and parking passes are mailed in August

*Parking requests are subject to availability.


Example:


Baldwin would like to purchase 2 season tickets in Section S of Alumni Stadium. Additionally he would like to park on the roof of the Commonwealth Ave Garage.

Section S asks for a $750 gift per seat ($750 X2 = $1,500)*, The Commonwealth Ave Garage Roof parking asks for a $2,000 donation.

Baldwin purchases his tickets and makes a $2,000 donation.

*Please note: Payments in exchange for seating rights are not deductible under new tax laws.

Football Seating


Fans purchasing seats in donor-based sections enjoy the very best sideline views as well as a padded seat cushions and several other amenities like discounts on concessions and the BC bookstore.

Seats in all donor-based sections are currently available for the minimum donation requirement per seat. This gift also qualifies for on-campus parking.

Current DBS Anticipated Donation Minimums:

  • Sections D & R: $1,000 per seat
  • Sections S, Q & C: $750 per seat
  • Sections DD, EE, & RR: $500 per seat
  • Sections SS & QQ: $250 per seat

In appreciation for former student-athletes at Boston College, season tickets in donor-based seating sections are may be purchased without the required donation. The full donation for parking (if desired) and cost of tickets still required, however.

Your support financially and in the stands will take BC athletics to Greater Heights. A lively and full stadium on game day helps our Eagles perform on the field and makes a statement to recruits about the type of program they want to join. Financial support allows BC to invest in the elements of training and competition that help our teams compete for championships and make us proud to be Eagles.

Game day on the Heights is also about coming together and having fun with family & friends. Rewarding those who invest in BC Athletics with the best seating and parking is a way for us to thank you for the important role you play.

Starting January 1, 2018 as a result of the US Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017, gifts made to provide rights to purchase seating at home athletic venues are no longer tax deductible. They continue to provide critical resources to BC Athletics. Any giving above seat requirements is tax deductible to the extent of the law. Please consult your tax adviser.

The Athletic Scholarship Seating Fund provides current-use dollars to support the annual scholarship bill. BC Athletics provides 272 full scholarships each year equating to approximately $20M in expenses. This fund will provide funding where the scholarship endowment falls short. The ability to offer scholarships is essential for our teams to compete for championships.

One gift covers your seating and parking. The portion of your gift that provides Donor-Based Seating rights will be placed into the Athletic Scholarship Seating Fund and anything given above the seat gift level can go to the Flynn Fund. Seat gifts are not tax deductible.

Example:


Baldwin has 2 seats in Section D of Alumni Stadium and parks on Shea Field. In fiscal year 2019 he plans to give $5,000 to fulfill any seating and parking gift levels. His benefit is calculated as follows:

Section D carries a $1,000 per seat donation minimum. For the two seats he is asked for $2,000.

Shea Field Parking carries an anticipated donation minimum of $5,000. The additional $3,000 above seating Baldwin gave to fulfill his parking ask is designated to the Flynn Fund.

Athletic Scholarship Seating: $2,000
Flynn Fund: $3,000


Total Gift to BC Athletics: $5,000*
(*Total gift is applied to any parking gift minimums)

No! One gift covers both seating for football as well as men’s basketball.

If the seating or parking requirements differ for football and basketball, you must give the greater amount of the two.

For example, I would like 2 seats in section D for football and are asked to give $2,000 ($1,000 per seat X 2 seats). For Men’s Basketball I want four seats in section N and am asked to give $3,000 ($750 per seat X 4 seats). To qualify for both I need to give $3,000.
