GO TIGERS! Clemson University is a special place. A place that changes lives and embraces each and every person it touches as a member of its own. The Clemson Family is a unique bond that ties people together of all origins, sex, and ethnicities by a force that can’t be explained. It is a feeling, a moment in time that captures people of all walks and ways, who spend time in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Even when the time comes to leave that special place, “Where The Blue Ridge Yawns Its Greatness,” those who have moved all across this country and around the world stay strong to roots planted in Clemson. In cities all around the country, hundreds of Clemson alumni, friends, and parents come together in a common bond. A bond that stems from the love for a University that has been committed to the development of young people through teaching, research, and service for more than 125 years. To connect with these growing Clemson Family units, from New York to Texas and places in-between, IPTAY, the Clemson Forever Fund and the Clemson Alumni Association are hitting the road to CU In The CITY this year. As giving back to Clemson is important and your participation is the key to our success. In the classroom, in athletic competition, and all across campus your continued support makes a difference in the life of our great University. We are excited that you have joined us and hope that you will make the commitment and give to help in our efforts of growing the #SolidOrange message.


BE A PART OF THE POWER BEHIND THE PAW JOIN IPTAY TODAY!

Since its founding in 1934, IPTAY has been committed to supporting Clemson student-athletes. IPTAY provides millions of dollars in support for athletic scholarships, new and upgraded facilities and the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Enrichment Center. At IPTAY, our mission is to provide Clemson student-athletes with the total athletic and academic experience. Their accomplishments, on and off the fields of competition, are a testament to the importance of continuing to invest in those areas that directly impact the lives of nearly 500 student-athletes in our 19-sport program. Whether you are a recent Clemson graduate or a Golden Tiger, we need you on the IPTAY team! No donation is too big or too small as they all make a difference for Clemson athletics. As a priority member of IPTAY you enjoy many benefits such as a donor card, car decals, address labels, thirty-seven issues of My Orange Update; IPTAY’s e-newsletter and ticket priorities. Today, IPTAY includes Clemson athletics supporters of all ages and incomes. In fact, that wide range of support makes IPTAY unique and helped us have several successful years in recent history. Your support is vital. Please consider the many ways that you can impact the life of a student-athlete, which in turn positively affects the Clemson athletic program, both now and in the future. Be a part of IPTAY today. Get all the details on ClemsonTigers.com/IPTAY, call 1-800-CLEMSON or visit with a representative tonight!

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 ticket allocation 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 IPTAY Annual Level Points chart.

IPTAY ANNUAL LEVEL POINTS

IPTAY PRIORITY POINTS = YEARS OF DONATING TO IPTAY + ANNUAL LEVEL GIVING POINTS + TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS $250
