What is Blazer Boosters?
Blazer Boosters is the fundraising arm of UAB Athletics and serves as the primary source of revenue for the athletics department. Blazer Boosters members assist in generating revenues for two main purposes. The first is to offset the more than $6.5 million in annual student-athlete scholarship costs. The second is to secure financial resources for capital projects such as new athletic facilities or renovations to existing athletic facilities. Members of Blazer Boosters are alumni and friends of UAB who recognize the value of the student-athlete experience.
Is my contribution tax deductible?
UAB Athletics recommends that donors check with their tax advisor. Generally speaking, if a donor's gift is related to priority seating, 80% of the contribution is tax deductible less any additional benefits received.

How do I obtain priority seating for football and/or men's basketball?
By joining the Blazer Club, individuals can secure priority seating for UAB football or UAB men's basketball home games. Seating locations are based on availability due to supply and demand and seats will be allocated based on priority points as outlined here (link to brochure pg.). The per-seat Blazer Club donation must be paid annually in addition to the season ticket cost in order to retain seats. Please review the minimum per-seat donation requirements in the Blazer Boosters membership guide.
