Clemson players lock arms on the field prior to the Virginia Tech game

B – in the spirit of giving!

December 10, 2020

Greetings, fellow Tigers!

Our No. 3 Tigers defeated Virginia Tech 45-10 on Saturday to advance to our sixth consecutive ACC Championship Game. With the win, Trevor Lawrence became the winningest starting quarterback in school-history (33). The Tigers will play in their sixth consecutive ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, N.C. at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19, in a rematch with Notre Dame.

Clemson men’s and women’s basketball teams are both off to an incredible start this season with undefeated records. The men’s team is now 4-0 and will tip-off against Alabama this Saturday, December 9. The women’s team is 5-0 and are traveling to Charlottesville today to face Virginia at 3 p.m.

Clemson’s relationship with Nemours still going and growing 25 years later

As the Nemours Wildlife Foundation celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the relationship between Clemson University and Nemours continues going strong and making a major impact on both students and programs. Established by the late Eugene duPont III and his family in 1995, the non-profit Nemours Wildlife Foundation is housed and operates on the nearly 10,000-acre Nemours Plantation in northern Beaufort County and works to be a leader in the scientific study and stewardship of our natural resources. And that study and stewardship has been helped by a significant number of Clemson students — 25 undergraduate interns all told in those 25 years and 16 Clemson graduate students who have produced nine peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals.

Nemours President and CEO Ernie Wiggers, an alum of Clemson’s wildlife program, said the need for those connections is beneficial for both the University and the Nemours Foundation’s goals as Clemson offers the only wildlife program in the state. Wiggers also commended the foundation’s close working relationship with Clemson’s James C. Kennedy Waterfowl & Wetlands Center, saying its presence adds to the synergy for research dealing with waterfowl and wetlands. You can read more here.

It is hard to believe that 2020 is winding down, and the fall semester is almost complete. And that means it is now the season of giving, and we are offering several goodies for you to share with the special Tigers in your life.

When you make your annual gift, you get the opportunity to purchase several of our limited-edition Clemson gifts, such as our Couch Season T-shirt.

We will also send you a free Clemson Through the Years 2021 calendar when you make your annual gift. You can purchase additional copies to share with friends and family so that you can celebrate our University year-round.

As you consider how you can give back this holiday season, it is important to note that more donations to charity can be deducted for 2020 under the CARES Act. The 60%-of-AGI limit on deductions for cash donations by people who itemize is suspended (gifts to donor-advised funds and private non-operating foundations are excluded). Non-itemizers can also write off up to $300 of charitable cash contributions. This is a new “above-the-line” deduction for people who don’t file Schedule A. You can read more here.

Because of your generosity, we are able to support the mission of our beloved University and provide support to our students, faculty and staff – ensuring that Tigers can experience Clemson’s greatness for generations to come.

Spread a little cheer by making a gift to Clemson before the end of the year and celebrate the most wonderful season of all. To make your gift, call 864-656-5896 or visit iamatiger.clemson.edu/giving/exclusives.


Go Tigers!
