LETTER FROM IPTAY CEO
WELCOME TO THE 2018 YEAR! SINCE ITS FOUNDING IN 1934, IPTAY has been committed to supporting Clemson student-athletes. IPTAY provides funding for athletic scholarships, new and upgraded facilities and the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Academic Enrichment Center. In addition, the “One IPTAY” enterprise oversees the management and oversight of all premium seating within our athletic venues, as well as the Block C Club. IPTAY also provides the largest academic endowment on campus to non-athlete students. We truly appreciate all you do to enable IPTAY to fund these initiatives that help Clemson Athletics be the model program that it is today! The 2016-2017 academic year for our Tigers was marked by record-breaking success, both in the classroom and in athletic competition. At Clemson, we strive to field nationally competitive teams that are also committed to academic achievement. The NCAA reported Clemson's most-recent student-athlete graduation success rate at 91 percent, tied for sixth nationally among public schools. GPAs for both the fall (3.02) and spring (3.00) semester set school records, and 53 student-athletes posted perfect 4.0 GPAs in the fall, with 46 achieving the mark in the spring. Accomplishments like this, both on and off the fields of competition, are a testament to the importance of continuing to invest in programs that directly impact the lives of nearly 500 student-athletes in our 19 sports. At IPTAY, our mission is to provide Clemson student-athletes with the total athletic and academic experience. I would like to thank our 17,181 members who support IPTAY and make this possible. If you are not currently an IPTAY donor, I urge you to join IPTAY at whatever level you can and support the “One IPTAY” enterprise as we continue in this new era for IPTAY and Clemson Athletics. On behalf of our staff, coaches and student-athletes, I would like to thank you for your generous support as we look forward to the upcoming year!
COMPLIANCE: ASK BEFORE YOU ACT Clemson University continues to have great successes on and off the playing field thanks to your support of Clemson Athletics. However, in order to represent the University in the most positive manner, coaches, staff, student-athletes, alumni, IPTAY members and fans must adhere to the rules and regulations of the NCAA, the ACC and the University. The NCAA requires each member Babb institution to have “institutional control” and to operate its intercollegiate athletics programs Davis in compliance with NCAA rules and Chief Executive Officer, IPTAY regulations. This means that Clemson University is responsible for your actions. Violations of NCAA rules, regardless of your intentions, can jeopardize a student-athlete’s opportunity to attend and compete for Clemson University. Violations also result in severe penalties for the University and the individual booster involved. If you have any questions or believe you have seen a violation of an NCAA rule, please contact Compliance Services at 864-656-1580 or compliance-L@clemson.edu.

IS THE HEART OF CLEMSON UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS. NO ONE CAN RESIST THE DRAW OF A PACKED VENUE — Solid Orange — the Clemson Tigers ready to take on their opponent. The band, the roar, the pride, the excitement. It’s all a part of what makes Clemson Athletics so special to fans, alumni and student-athletes. In 1934 Clemson had just been defeated 6-0 by The Citadel, and it was not the only defeat that year. Fans were despondent. Joe Davis, Frank Jervey and Peter Hefner asked then-Coach Jess Neely how much money it would take for him to put out a good team. He replied that he thought he could do it with $10,000 a year.
The group decided to ask team supporters for $50 a year, but that amount proved to be too much in the middle of the Great Depression. But Rupert Fike met with other Clemson alums and penned the letter to Coach Neely that officially got the ball rolling: “Dear Coach, last night we had a little meeting at my house and organized the IPTAY Club.” That IPTAY stood for

ROBERT JOLLY SENIOR // PRTM // MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.
I always wanted to play collegiate baseball growing up, and Clemson was always a dream school of mine. Clemson has a family feel, and was so real to me even before I was on campus. I was also able to go to school with my best friends who are like brothers to me, guys that I grew up with, Hunter Renfrow and Sawyer Jordan. We grew up with the dream of all going to the same school, and Clemson gave us that opportunity.
DANIELLE EDWARDS JUNIOR // SPORTS COMMUNICATION // PERRY HALL, MD.
IPTAY means the world to me. Education is something that is very important to my family, so for IPTAY to help me not only continue my athletic career but also my academic career means a lot to me. I chose Clemson because I loved the family atmosphere, and I wanted to be a part of a changing program. The resources IPTAY has provided for me and all Clemson student-athletes are incredible, and I cannot thank them enough.
LOGAN MORRIS SOPHMORE // ENGINEERING // INMAN, S.C.
Logan Morris didn’t have to travel far to find her college home. The Inman, S.C., native chose Clemson for its beautiful campus and friendly, loving people. She was also impressed by the renovated indoor track facility and performances by athletes like Grace Barnett, and by the talented and experienced coaching staff. She knew she could find her fit at Clemson. The cross country runner and engineering major also feels right at home in the classroom. She enjoys her engineering classes because they focus on problem solving, “I like the challenge of finding new solutions to problems, and it is interesting to see the other solutions and methods my classmates chose.” She plans to someday get her master’s degree and find a job that incorporates both her passion for helping people and industrial engineering. Logan’s favorite moment as a Clemson student-athlete took place at the ACC Cross Country Championship this past fall. She recalls, “It was a true picture of teamwork as we each did our part that day to finish at one of the highest team placements in Clemson cross country history.” Logan is living the student-athlete dream, and she gives thanks to support from IPTAY. “Student-athletes at Clemson are treated like professionals. We have so many resources that keep us fit, healthy and improving. IPTAY has allowed our team to continue to get better. I have learned more about nutrition, strength and conditioning, life skills and community service. On top of that, I am given the opportunity to compete in a sport I love at the Division I level for the best University in the nation!”
SENIOR // INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING // BENI, BOLIVIA
SOPHOMORE // MARKETING // NASHVILLE, TN.
Clemson is a school that values traditions; the alumni love the school and are so proud to call themselves Clemson Tigers. I knew a few people who had played for Clemson in the past, and the love they felt for their school was what helped me make the decision to come to here. They told me that Clemson is something that you cannot explain from the inside, and you cannot understand from the outside, until you become a Tiger.
IPTAY has had a huge impact on my experience as a studentathlete. It offers a sense of community and an opportunity for student-athletes to be part of a unique and special group of college athletes. Support from IPTAY provides student-athletes with an opportunity to continually grow both on and off the field. IPTAY offers an experience that is not comparable to anywhere else in the country, and for that I will be forever thankful.
CHRISTIAN WILKINS JUNIOR // COMMUNICATION // SPRINGFIELD, MASS.
Christian Wilkins traveled a long way to get to Clemson, but from the moment he arrived on campus, he made it his second home. There are few people who embrace their University, and life itself, quite like Christian. He is known for his positive energy, genuine character, and indomitable spirit. And he is also a pretty good football player! Christian was an integral part of the Tiger’s national championship season. Recognized as one of the nation's most versatile defensive linemen, as well as an All-ACC Academic Team selection, Christian is probably best known for his larger-than-life personality and love for Clemson. IPTAY was created for student-athletes like Christian, who come to these hills from points far and wide, and give their all on the field of competition, in the classroom, and for their teammates and classmates. “IPTAY is an organization that represents the spirit of Clemson, Christian says. “You see all these people at games and they are so supportive. As a football player, you think about all the people in the stands who have helped you with your education. It brings everyone together.” Thank you, Christian, for bringing us together and embodying the spirit of IPTAY and the indomitable spirit of Clemson.
TARYN CARROLL RS SENIOR // COMMUNICATION // RIDGEWOOD, N.J.
So much of what we do as student-athletes wouldn’t be possible without the support of IPTAY. Every day, student-athletes use resources and take part in programs that IPTAY helps support. I have taken advantage of every aspect of student-athlete development. We get to compete out of one of the nicest boathouses in the country, receive treatment and strength and conditioning by trainers at Jervey, get tutored and advised in the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Enrichment Center and have meetings with nutritionists and sports psychologists in McFadden. I feel so lucky to be taken care of so well as a student-athlete at Clemson!
DOC REDMAN SOPHOMORE // MATHMATICAL SCIENCES // RALEIGH, N.C.
Academics have always been very important in my family and I certainly appreciate all that IPTAY does in providing the scholarship money that we receive. IPTAY has been a part of the Clemson golf program for many years. Because Coach Penley was a studentathlete at Clemson, we were told about the importance it has on our program from our freshman year.

WAYS TO GIVE
HOW TO MAKE A GIFT TO IPTAY
Every gift to IPTAY, no matter the size, makes a difference. And there are a number of ways to make your gift. Your membership may be paid by:
IPTAY annual members are the rock-solid foundation that has served the University for more than 80 years. Every year, nearly 500 Clemson student-athletes — and a number of non-athletes — benefit from scholarships provided by IPTAY. These funds also make academic enrichment and life-skills training available for student-athletes and cover annual operating expenses and discretionary initiatives such as capital projects.
IPTAY MAJOR GIFTS Clemson depends on the generosity and foresight of donors to build and maintain collegiate athletic excellence. Gifts that build an endowment and support major facilities and large-scale initiatives leave a lasting legacy and are vital to the future and the quality of athletics at the University. Major gifts may be in the form of cash, real estate, securities, gifts-in-kind and any number of other options.
IPTAY GIFT PLANNING Planned gifts are a means of ensuring that the priorities of IPTAY continue for years to come. These visionary gifts ensure that opportunities exist for future generations of student-athletes through bequests, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts and a number of other instruments that continue long into the future.
*SCHEDULED DRAFTS Paying your IPTAY pledge has never been easier. Have a portion of your IPTAY pledge deducted monthly from your credit card or debit card and forget check writing and stamps. The IPTAY fiscal year is July 1 through June 30. The draft will begin July 15 and will continue on the 15th of each month through June 15 of the next year to complete your pledge by the deadline. If you are interested in learning more about scheduled monthly payments or would like to set up a monthly draft, please contact Robin Lay in the IPTAY business office at 864-656-2977.
MATCHING GIFTS Extend the impact of your gift — without increasing your donation with funds provided by your employer through your company’s matching gift program. Your company match is included in your cumulative giving, which may move your membership to higher levels and, in turn, increase your IPTAY Priority Points for seats and parking.
TO CREATE A PAYMENT METHOD most convenient for you, please call 1-800-CLEMSON or 864-656-2115, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by the IPTAY office at 1 Avenue of Champions at Centennial Boulevard (at Gate 9 of Memorial Stadium). Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Your company’s human resources department can tell you if your company has a matching gift program. If it does, you will need to fill out your company’s form and mail it to IPTAY, P.O. Box 1529, Clemson, S.C. 29633. For more information, simply call 1-800-CLEMSON. BLOCK C MEMBERSHIP LEVELS

THE IPTAY PRIORITY POINTS SYSTEM The IPTAY Priority Points rewards system is another way of rewarding the loyalty of IPTAY members. Developed in an effort to reward gift amounts and long-term support in the distribution of tickets, seating and parking, Priority Points are also used for tickets to bowl games, the ACC basketball tournament and all road games. IPTAY Priority Points are determined by a formula that utilizes both loyalty and contribution levels as shown in the chart below.
YEARS OF DONATING TO IPTAY + TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS + ANNUAL LEVEL OF GIVING POINTS
$250 = IPTAY PRIORITY POINTS
EXAMPLE: IPTAY donor: 17 years; Total donation to IPTAY: $54,400; Most recent membership level: IPTAY level 17 + $54,400 + 20 = 255 Priority Points $250
2017 IPTAY Per-Seat Donation Yellow - $800 Grey - $600 Tangerine - $350 Blue - $250 Red - $200 Pink - $100 Green - Students // Visiting Team
IPTAY’S FOOTBALL SEAT EQUITY PLAN In 2008, Clemson joined the other top-20 FBS football attendance leaders in adding a preferred seating component to its annual giving program. Under the plan, season ticketholders who give at or above the specified per-seat values qualify for specific seating in Memorial Stadium. The initiative has enhanced annual support for student-athletes at Clemson and has given our athletic programs the resources they need to compete at the highest level, both in the classroom and in athletic competition. All season tickets in Memorial Stadium available for purchase require a per-seat donation. Minimum per-seat donations for specific seating in Memorial Stadium can be seen in the adjacent map. These adjustments have been determined and endorsed by the IPTAY Board of Directors and the Athletic Department. We anticipate IPTAY donors will continue the long-standing history of a high renewal rate, which could impact the number of lower-level seats that are available.

Seat Equity Plan Equation: IPTAY Seat Value x Number of Seats = Required IPTAY Donation As a reminder, the maximum number of season tickets an IPTAY Donor is eligible to purchase each season is determined by your IPTAY annual giving level. Please refer to the IPTAY benefits chart for exact quantities. When the initial IPTAY Seat Equity Plan was announced and implemented in 2008 and modified in 2013, one component of the plan permitted periodic marketplace review of the values of each section of seating in Memorial Stadium. The diagram to the right shows the newest per-seat donations implemented during the IPTAY 2017 year.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: HOW DOES THE PLAN AFFECT LIFE AND ENDOWMENT DONORS? As was done in 2008 and 2013, the modification of the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan will allow life donors to purchase the number of seats outlined in their respective life donor agreements as it pertains to the specific IPTAY giving level. These seats in the life donor agreement will not be affected. However, seats purchased above and beyond the life donor agreed upon number (included in the agreement) will be impacted by the modification of the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan, similar to the 2008 and 2013 IPTAY Seat Equity Plans.
Q: HOW DOES THE PLAN AFFECT CLEMSON FACULTY AND STAFF MEMBERS? A faculty/staff member will have the same opportunity to maintain current seats as an IPTAY donor. Continuing from the 2013 IPTAY Seat Equity Plan, a current Clemson faculty/staff member who purchases season tickets will receive a $160 credit toward an IPTAY membership, which may be applied to the modification of the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan. If the faculty/staff member already maintains an IPTAY donor level, $160 will be credited/added to his/her current donor level.
Q: IS THE IPTAY SEAT EQUITY PLAN TAX DEDUCTIBLE? Yes. The IRS has ruled that gifts for preferential seating are 80% tax deductible. Please consult your tax adviser for more information.
Q: DOES THE PLAN MEAN THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR SECTION PAYS THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY? A misconception when we use the term “equity” is that each IPTAY donor sitting next to another IPTAY donor is donating the same amount as the other. This is true in some cases, but there are many other factors that contribute to this not being exact. Obviously, the quantity of tickets is the main factor, as well as the parking the donors request for their IPTAY annual donation. The per-seat donation that IPTAY requires members to contribute is the minimum donors can contribute to renew their seats. Many IPTAY donors contribute more than the required
donation. However, one must consider all of the factors, including parking priority, seat locations and most critically, that each donation is supporting the mission of IPTAY—supporting Clemson student-athletes through scholarships, facilities and academic support.
Q: WHY IS THE SEAT EQUITY PLAN IMPORTANT? The preferred seating component within IPTAY is a vital part of the IPTAY Annual Fund. The funds generated by the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan go directly to supporting our student-athletes by way of athletic scholarships, new and upgraded facilities and student-athlete academic support services. These dollars continue to be critical in IPTAY’s efforts to provide the necessary resources to all student-athletes to be top competitors in the classroom and in athletic competition amidst the rising costs associated with intercollegiate athletics.
Q: WILL THE IPTAY SEAT EQUITY PLAN BE REQUIRED BEYOND 2017? Yes. The IPTAY Seat Equity Plan works in conjunction with your annual IPTAY contribution and will be necessary for your season ticket renewal each year. Also, the donation levels and seat values associated with each specific section may be revised to address the future needs of IPTAY and the Clemson University Athletic Department. The IPTAY Board and the athletic department will review the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan each year.
Q: DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ANNUAL IPTAY SEAT EQUITY PLAN TO KEEP MY SEASON-TICKET LOCATION? Yes. The IPTAY Seat Equity Plan is a requirement for renewal of season tickets in these identified priority locations. Please note all seating areas within Memorial Stadium now have an associated per-seat value.
Q: HOW WILL THIS AFFECT MY PARKING ASSIGNMENT? Parking is reassigned on an annual basis using each donor’s annual giving level and priority point total. As donors make a decision to increase their giving to
retain seats or to request seat improvements, parking assignments may be affected.
Q: CAN I USE MY EMPLOYER’S MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM TOWARD MY CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE IPTAY SEAT EQUITY PLAN? Yes. If your employer will match a gift to an athletic program, you can use these funds to fulfill the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan contribution. The matching contribution will only be credited to your account when the funds are received by IPTAY.
AWAY-GAME TICKET INFORMATION Away-game tickets are allocated based on IPTAY Priority Points. For some away games, a Priority Point cutoff, as well as ticket limits, may be put in place to give as many IPTAY donors as possible the opportunity to purchase tickets. In the event that the number of orders received for an away game exceeds the available allotment, a Priority Point cutoff will be established, and those who do not meet the point requirement will be notified and refunded the purchase price.
PAYMENT METHODS The Clemson Athletic Ticket Office accepts payment by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, cash and check. Please make checks payable to CUAD.

IPTAY donations are generally 80 percent tax deductible if a donor purchases season tickets and 100 percent deductible without season tickets. Please consult with your tax adviser for more information.
IPTAY is a non-profit entity with a volunteer board of directors that works with the Clemson University Department of Athletics to serve its mission by raising private funds and providing necessary resources to achieve success.

THE FUTURE OF IPTAY IS YOU! Just as it was envisioned by Rupert Fike in 1934, IPTAY is about a loyal fan base of supporters at all levels. Gifts of all sizes, from those of Tiger Cubs to multimillion-dollar leadership gifts, serve to support student-athletes.
Jason Wilson, IPTAY Assistant Director email@example.com
Without IPTAY support, you might not be sitting in a state-of-the-art stadium, surrounded by other fans in solid orange, cheering on a strong team of Tigers. And across campus, student-athletes in 18 other sports would not be able to take to the field, arena or water proudly wearing the Tiger Paw.
COMPLIANCE: ASK BEFORE YOU ACT Clemson University continues to have great successes on and off the playing field thanks to your support of Clemson Athletics. However, in order to represent the University in the most positive manner, coaches, staff, student-athletes, alumni, IPTAY members and fans must adhere to the rules and regulations of the NCAA, the ACC and the University. The NCAA requires each member institution to have “institutional control” and to operate its intercollegiate athletics programs in compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. This means that Clemson University is responsible for your actions. Violations of NCAA rules, regardless of your intentions, can jeopardize a student-athlete’s opportunity to attend and compete for Clemson University. Violations also result in severe penalties for the University and the individual booster involved. If you have any questions or believe you have seen a violation of an NCAA rule, please contact Compliance Services at 864-656-1580 or compliance-L@clemson.edu.
