The Flames Club operates as an extension of the Liberty University Athletics Department, with the mission of cultivating financial and community support. Flames Club membership begins at just $60, with ascending membership levels ranging up to $12,000. Members enjoy preferred seating, parking, and pre-game dining; depending on contribution level. Gifts are generally 80% tax-deductible (see your tax advisor), and donated funds help to underwrite the cost of scholarships, capital improvements, and other expenses related to the operation of Lynchburg's only NCAA Division I athletics program. The Flames Club hopes to reach 1,000 members by 2015. For membership information, visit the LibertyFlames.com/FlamesClub website, e-mail FlamesClub@liberty.edu, or call 434-582-2582.
