H-Club FAQs

You are here

Funds raised through premium seat contributions (“PSC’s”) and philanthropic gifts support the University of Hawaii Athletics Department and nearly 500 student-athletes.

Philanthropic gifts are monetary donations specifically designated for the H-Club program.  Other outright donations to AKA, UH Athletics or Booster Clubs do not fall into this category and do not count toward H-Club membership.

PSC’s are 80% tax deductible, less the value of benefits received through H-Club membership.

Philanthropic gifts that allow a member to achieve a new membership level are 80% tax deductible, less the value of new benefits. Philanthropic gifts that do not achieve a new membership level are 100% tax deductible.

Receipts will be sent to members to document tax deductible amounts. Please consult with your financial advisor or a qualified tax professional for more information.

No.  Only PSC’s and philanthropic gifts to H-Club count toward membership.

Fans that maintain season tickets for more than one sport make PSC payments at multiple times during the calendar year.  Totaling PSC’s from the previous year allows these donors to receive full credit for their annual contributions and enjoy corresponding benefits all year long.

Yes.  Non-season ticket holders may become H-Club members by making a philanthropic gift of $50 or more.

No.  Any changes to your total PSC’s as a result of relocating or adding tickets will not impact your H-Club membership until the following calendar year. 

New season ticket holders may become H-Club members immediately by making a philanthropic gift of $50 or more.  PSC’s attached to your new season tickets will count toward your H-Club membership next year.

No.  H-Club membership dollars accrued through PSCs and/or philanthropic gifts may not be transferred or credited to other accounts.  Exceptions to this policy are granted for multiple accounts under the same name or account combinations between spouses.

There is no specific deadline for joining H-Club or upgrading your membership level.  However, member benefits are distributed throughout the year and may not be available after seasons begin or after all items have been allotted.
