LETTER FROM IPTAY CEO

WELCOME TO THE 2020 YEAR!

SINCE 1934, IPTAY HAS BEEN A LEADER IN INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS FUNDRAISING, and our brand has been built by grassroots efforts and representatives throughout the Southeast who work in their communities to raise support. This support and commitment by our IPTAY family has aided in continued athletic success for the Tigers. In just the last five years, team accomplishments include two College Football Playoff National Championships, two additional appearances in the College Football Playoff, a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 for men’s basketball, over 25 NCAA tournament appearances and multiple ACC team championships! As you can see, we have much to celebrate. In addition, our student-athletes make us proud by their work both in the classroom and in the community. A school-record 242 Clemson student-athletes were named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll for the 2018-19 academic year. Sixty members of Clemson’s National Championship football team were named to the team, which earned a programrecord 992 Academic Progress Rate, while 48 members of the rowing team earned the honor. In November 2018, Clemson also set a new school record with a 92% graduation success rate in the report released by the NCAA, in which data from the incoming classes of 2008-11 academic years were included. The department also had a 986 Academic Progress Rate, third-best on record. In the community, our student-athletes completed 2,092 service hours, provided 39,494 meals through the Palmetto Series Food Drive and more than 85% of our young men and women participated in at least one of the available volunteer initiatives. All of these statistics are just from the fall of 2018. As you can see, IPTAY members at every level are making a direct impact on each of our 19 sports in our athletic program, and this past year was one of the best fundraising years in the history of our organization. The generosity by so many across the entire Clemson Family is how we are able to support our nearly 500 Clemson studentathletes. For the third straight year, the “One-IPTAY” enterprise eclipsed the $60M mark in donations. At the close of FY 19, total contributions to IPTAY reached $63.7M in cash and pledges. This mark is the second highest recorded in the 85 year history of the organization, only outpaced by the IPTAY 2018 year. The total dollar number for IPTAY 2019 includes $35.7M contributed to the annual fund, $15.5M in major gift donations, $7M in premium seating and $5.3M in planned giving. These dollars help propel our athletic program and provide our studentathletes with the tools they need to be successful in all phases of their athletic and academic careers while at Clemson. For complete details on how the IPTAY 2019 year concluded, please visit our website ClemsonTigers. com/IPTAY to view the IPTAY 2019 Year in Review. As we move into the IPTAY 2020 year, the future is bright for our organization and Clemson athletics because of our important members! If you are not currently a member, I urge you to join and support the “OneIPTAY” enterprise. The IPTAY board and our staff are dedicated to doing everything possible to ensure funding for Clemson athletics will be on solid footing for years to come. On behalf of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and athletic administrators, I want to thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our program. You are important members of the team, and I appreciate your support.

DAVIS BABB Chief Executive Officer, IPTAY

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.”

ST

CENTURY IPTAY provides millions of dollars in support for 19 varsity sports and various other programs that help enrich the lives of Clemson student-athletes. In the last 10 years, scholarship costs for student-athletes have risen by 79 percent! The IPTAY Scholarship expense amount also includes room and board, fees and other expenses to the University tuition costs, bringing the approximate total cost of attendance to $26,000 for in-state and $46,000 for out-of-state students. It is important to note that the IPTAY scholarship expense does vary annually due to a variety of factors including the number of scholarships awarded, ratio of in-state versus out-of-state students, summer school attendance and major-specific student fees to name a few.

AAMIR

SIMMS MEN'S BASKETBALL | FORWARD | JUNIOR | PALMYRA, VA. IPTAY has impacted my time here as a student in many ways. With their support I have been able to network with people outside of basketball who have found success! It shows how strong the Clemson Family is in all aspects and how much they care about the success of the next generation! Their support has pushed my academic responsibilities to a new level allowing me to focus on school more than ever and becoming the best Tiger I can be, both on and off the court!

MADI

HOWELL VOLLEYBALL | DEF. SPECIALIST | JUNIOR | KNOXVILLE, TENN. IPTAY has provided me with countless opportunities during my student-athlete experience. I have been lucky enough to have received a scholarship, been a part of the Tiger Leadership Academy, and have reaped the benefits that IPTAY has donated to the volleyball program. Myself and my team are truly grateful to have support from IPTAY. Thank you!

WALLCE FOOTBALL | SAFETY | SENIOR | RICHMOND, VA.

P.A.W. Journey is a life-changing experience, a lifechanging program. The learning skills that you get from it, the networking skills that you gain from it, the work experience giving you a gist of the corporate world, it is focused on our development off-the-field and I feel like that’s the most important thing that all athletes should look forward to after sports. I’m a P.A.W. Journey Ambassador myself and it’s helped me get internships. I interned with the NFL at the headquarters in New York. I completed an internship at Cisco. For Clemson to develop a P.A.W. Journey program to help athletes off the field, it’s a life-changing experience and it’s a blessing. I would definitely tell our IPTAY donors that I appreciate everything they do for myself, my teammates and the whole football program. We definitely appreciate everything they do helping to provide student-athletes with life skills. They realize that football isn’t everything, and we appreciate the realization that off-the-field activities are just as important as the ones on the field. Aligning us with the tools and skills to succeed after football is a blessing, and I believe that all departments should have this type of atmosphere. I know all my teammates and colleagues would say we appreciate everything the donors do and what they align us with.

IPTAY has provided me with a fantastic opportunity to further both my academic and athletic careers. Without the financial support of the IPTAY program, I wouldn’t be able to have anywhere near the type of experience I’ve had at Clemson. Between the facilities, relationships, financial support and other benefits that our donors and IPTAY provide, it’s hard to imagine my time at Clemson without their support. I am extremely grateful for and appreciative of all of our donors and IPTAY.

IPTAY has provided my team and I with opportunities and services that deliver the best Clemson experience possible. From academics to facilities to student-athlete development and enrichment programs such as the Nieri Family StudentAthlete Enrichment Center, IPTAY has enhanced every aspect of my time here at Clemson. IPTAY has given me and my team resources to be successful on and off the field.

SMITH

TRACK & FIELD | SPRINTS | JUNIOR | IRMO, S.C. As a student-athlete at Clemson University, IPTAY has allowed me to achieve many great accomplishments on and off the track. Academically, the Nieri Family Student-Athelte Enrichment Center provides every student-athlete with the best support staff to ensure that we receive the best education possible. From our tutors to our advisors, they care about our success and want each and every one of us to earn our degree. The Nieri Family Student-Athlete Enrichment Center's physical appeal with the white board walls in the study rooms, glass doors and computer access makes studying more enjoyable and productive. It also provides a lot of athletes with meals to eat for pre and post workouts. Tiger Fuel has a great selection of food and is one of the best additions to the academic center. As far as on the track, we have been blessed with an amazing indoor facility that contains one of the best banked tracks in the nation. I’ve been ignited with motivation after having seen countless athletes break world records on our track. I’m so grateful I am able to witness these high level performances on campus. I have also been able to participate in Clemson’s Tiger Leadership Academy. This program has allowed me to learn more about myself as a leader, gain more confidence in myself as an athlete, and accept what makes me, me. With all the amazing resources IPTAY provides, it lessens the pressure and weight I carry, physically and academically. Knowing we have such a great support system that cares about our accomplishments as both a student and an athlete really shows what Clemson is all about.

MEN'S TENNIS | SOPHOMORE | MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. IPTAY has made a huge impact on my experiences as a studentathlete. They provide support for not only the tennis program but all sport programs here at Clemson. With the funding for our studentathlete scholarships, ensuring we have amazing learning resources like the Nieri Family Enrichment Center, and playing a crucial role in raising the necessary funds to build the brand new, state-of-theart Duckworth Family Tennis Center. IPTAY has really set myself and my teammates up for success on and off the court.

DESTINY

THOMAS WOMEN'S BASKETBALL | GUARD | SENIOR | PELHAM, GA. IPTAY offers numerous opportunities and resources for student-athletes here at Clemson.

WAYS TO GIVE: GIVING OPTIONS IPTAY ANNUAL IPTAY annual members are the rock-solid foundation that has served the University for more than 85 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.

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.

IPTAY PRIORITY POINTS = YEARS OF DONATING TO IPTAY + TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS + ANNUAL LEVEL OF GIVING POINTS

$250

$180 $450 $900 $1,700 $2,600 $3,500 $5,000 $6,500 $8,000 $12,000

EXAMPLE: IPTAY donor: 17 years; Total donation to IPTAY: $59,500; Most recent membership level: IPTAY level 17 + $59,500 + 20 = 275 Priority Points $250

IPTAY’S FOOTBALL SEAT EQUITY PLAN

2017 IPTAY Per-Seat Donation Yellow - $800 Grey - $600 Tangerine - $350 Blue - $250 Red - $200 Pink - $100 Green - Students // Visiting Team

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 ticket holders who give at or above the specified per-seat values qualify for specific seating in Memorial Stadium.

-237-221 - LEVEL 2 NORTH LEVEL 1 -140-121 NORTH

NORTH - LEVEL 2NORTH - LEVEL 220-201 1 - 120-1 01

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 donor requirements have been determined and endorsed by the IPTAY Board of Directors and the Athletic Department. 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 current per-seat donations implemented during the IPTAY 2017 year.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: HOW DOES THE PLAN AFFECT LIFE AND ENDOWMENT DONORS?

Q: WHY IS THE SEAT EQUITY PLAN IMPORTANT?

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.

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 studentathlete 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: HOW DOES THE PLAN AFFECT CLEMSON FACULTY AND STAFF MEMBERS?

Q: WILL THE IPTAY SEAT EQUITY PLAN BE REQUIRED BEYOND 2020?

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 two or more season tickets will receive a $180 credit toward an IPTAY membership, which may be applied to the IPTAY Seat Equity Plan. If the faculty/staff member already maintains an IPTAY donor membership, $180 will be credited/ added to his/her current membership.

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: 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: 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 have an associated per-seat value.

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, 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.

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.

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.

Our students compete at the highest level, and our success would not be possible without you. I’m proud to be an IPTAY member myself. DABO SWINNEY, HEAD FOOTBALL COACH
