what your membership fees and donations support
The University has pulled back from funding student organizations and club sports, so having a strong, supportive, and active alumni board is essential for helping the team maintain funding.
funding the CRA endowment
supplementing the team's fundraising efforts when it comes to purchasing equipment for the team
encouraging the sport of rowing in the Clemson area.
organizing events for FCC members such as tailgating, alumni gatherings, alumni rows, etc.
What does "tax-deductible" mean?
A tax deduction is a deduction that lowers a person's tax liability by lowering their taxable income. Deductions are typically expenses that the taxpayer incurs during the year that can be applied against or subtracted from their gross income in order to figure out how much tax is owed.
