IPTAY Bonus Points To Be Awarded For IPTAY 2020 Donations

The IPTAY Board of Directors is proud to announce the adoption of an IPTAY Priority Point bonus program, designed to reward donors for their commitment in the IPTAY 2020 year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020). This decision is historic and will offer donors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to positively affect their Priority Point total. This is first time in the history of the Priority Points rewards system that bonus points have been offered.

Since 1934, IPTAY has been the backbone of the Clemson Tigers, supporting the success of our nearly 500 student-athletes in competition and in the classroom. Our over 17,000 priority donors are the fuel that makes everything possible for these young men and women who wear the Tiger Paw!

The IPTAY Priority Points rewards system has been in place for decades and is a way of rewarding the loyalty of those who support the Clemson Tigers. The system rewards gift amounts and the long-term commitment in the distribution of tickets, seating, and parking allocations. Priority Points are also used for tickets to bowl games, the ACC Basketball Tournament, and all road contests.

This year as we face the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we continue to be grateful for the ongoing support of our IPTAY donors. The upcoming fall athletic season will look much different than any we have seen, but the commitment by our IPTAY donors we know will remain strong.

“We are excited to be able to offer donors the opportunity to earn bonus points for their IPTAY 2020 donation. We are facing challenging times and the ability to reward donors who leave their commitment with IPTAY is substantial and important. I want to thank the IPTAY Board for their leadership on this significant benefit to our loyal donors.” – Davis Babb, IPTAY CEO

 

IPTAY 2020 Bonus Point Program 

The IPTAY 2020 Bonus Point Program consists of two ways to acquire bonus points on a donors’ IPTAY Priority Point total. The information below is strictly related to bonus points.

Note: If you have already opted out for the 2020 football season, you are still eligible to participate in the bonus point program. After the August 21 Redshirt/Opt Out deadline, you will receive communication on the ticket related bonus point opportunities.

Opportunity #1: Donors who leave 100% of their 2020 donation with IPTAY will receive 100 bonus points and donors who leave  50% – 99.9% of their 2020 donation will receive 50 bonus points. These bonus points will count towards the donor’s cumulative IPTAY Priority Point total and will remain with the donor for the lifetime of their account.

  • If a donor leaves less than 50% of their IPTAY 2020 donation they will not receive any bonus points for the IPTAY 2020 year.

Opportunity #2: IPTAY donors who purchase football season tickets will also have the opportunity to donate their 2020 football season ticket payments to IPTAY. For each 2020 football season ticket donated to IPTAY, the donor will receive 5 bonus points.  These bonus points will count towards the donor’s cumulative IPTAY Priority Point total and will remain with the donor for the lifetime of their account.

  • Football season ticket money donated to IPTAY will also count toward the donor’s cumulative giving. For example, if a donor donates two season tickets to IPTAY, the $860 ($430 per season ticket) will also earn the donor 3.44 IPTAY Priority Points.  Note: The season ticket cost for Young Alumni donors and Faculty/Staff is $344.

 

Example: The example below is for a Jervey ($5,000) donor who leaves 100% of donation with IPTAY and donates four football season tickets ($430 x 4 = $1,720) to IPTAY.

100 Bonus Points = $25,000 Value     50 Bonus Points = $12,500 Value

  • A donor in between giving levels would need to remain at their originally pledged donation amount to revive all 100 bonus points. Example: A Fike donor at $8,900 could not drop to $8,000 and still receive 100 bonus points. That donor would receive 50 points.
  • Faculty/Staff,  IPTAY Young Alumni and Life Plus donor bonus points are based on personal cash given in IPTAY 2020.

  • The Young Alumni and Faculty/Staff season ticket cost for the 2020 season is $344. This is not reflected in the chart above.

Football Premium Seat Ticket Bonus Points: For the 2020 Clemson football season, any premium seat holder in either the Yount’s South Club or WestZone Club who allows IPTAY to retain dollars associated with the club ticket cost, catering, and premium donation will receive 15 bonus points per ticket. Any Club seat ticket dollars deferred to the 2021 season are not included in the bonus process.
