Fellow Tigers,

From our entire IPTAY and Clemson Athletics team, we hope you and your family are staying safe.

IPTAY, a national leader in athletics philanthropy, supports the success of Clemson student-athletes in the classroom and in athletic competition. Your annual commitment to IPTAY continues to fund more than $40 million in direct support of our nearly 500 Clemson student-athletes. For that, we thank you. Most importantly, this support provides the necessary financial resources for our young people to pursue their academic endeavors. These contributions also aid in the support of new and upgraded facilities, the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Enrichment Center, nutrition services, strength & conditioning and more.

Currently, we are planning for the upcoming fall season of Clemson Athletics with great anticipation! With passionate donors and great fans like yourself, places like Memorial Stadium, Historic Riggs Field, and Jervey Gym provide an outstanding home field/court advantage for our student-athletes and coaches. We cannot wait for our Clemson Family to be back together. As a reminder the deadline to complete the 2020 football season ticket and parking application is this Friday, May 15.

With the approaching IPTAY June 30 donation deadline, we realize there are questions regarding your IPTAY 2020 contributions. Our team is actively working with Clemson Athletics and the University mapping out details in the event the 2020 Clemson football season is altered. IPTAY will communicate details regarding your 2020 donation should changes be made to the upcoming football season. Since 1934, IPTAY has provided Clemson Athletics with incredible program changing support. Please know that in these challenging times, our goal is to balance continuing that needed financial support while also being equitable and fair to our donors.

During these truly unprecedented times, the safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, donors, and fans remains of the utmost importance. We continue to be forever thankful for you and your support of IPTAY and Clemson student-athletes. If our team can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office by phone at 1-800-Clemson or by email at iptay@clemson.edu. Thank you for being a part of the “Power behind the Paw.”

Go Tigers!
