How Does the Seat Equity Plan Affect Me?
The Seat Equity Plan may or may not have an impact on your current seat locations or your annual Nittany Lion Club contributions.
Beginning in July 2010, a Nittany Lion Club donor's required annual contribution will be determined by three factors when purchasing season tickets - (1) the quantity of season tickets the donor wishes to purchase (as is currently the case); (2) whether the donor would like additional benefits (Preferred or Reserved Parking); and (3) the desired location(s) of season tickets.
To determine how the Seat Equity Plan will specifically affect their situation, a Nittany Lion Club member who purchases football season tickets must:
Step #1: Select desired quantity of season tickets
The required 2011 Nittany Lion Club Giving Levels shown below determine the minimum contribution necessary for the quantity of football tickets desired.
For example, a season ticket holder with four (4) tickets must contribute a minimum of $400.
Please reference the Nittany Lion Club Giving Levels chart below and enter your minimum contribution based on ticket quantity here:
Step #2: Select additional benefits (Preferred or Reserved Parking) A Nittany Lion Club member who wants Preferred or Reserved Parking in addition
to season tickets must refer again to the 2011 Nittany Lion Club Giving Levels chart (below) to determine the minimum contribution needed for their desired
combination of season ticket quantity and parking.
The addition of specific parking privileges may require a larger minimum annual contribution.
For example, as indicated on the 2011 Giving Levels Chart, a Nittany Lion Club member who wishes to purchase four (4) season tickets, but wants a Reserved Parking space as well, will contribute a minimum of $2,500 per year.
Please reference the Nittany Lion Club Giving Levels chart below and enter your minimum contribution based on parking type and
Step #3: Select desired seat location(s) on the color-coded 2011 Beaver Stadium Seating Chart. The Seat Equity Plan will reflect a Nittany
Lion Club member's annual contribution to the assigned location of their football season tickets by establishing a minimum contribution level for all Beaver Stadium seating.
The total amount due based on zone seating is not a donation requirement over and above a season ticket holder's annual Nittany Lion Club contribution. Rather, the Seat Equity zone-based contribution represents an additional factor in determining annual contribution levels that reflect ticket location, as well as quantity of season tickets and parking.
Step #4: On lines below, please enter the -
Total from STEP #1 $ ___________________
Total from STEP #2 $ ___________________
Total from STEP #3 $ ___________________
Your total 2011 minimum contribution will be the greatest of the 3 amounts determined in Steps 1, 2 and 3.
Remember, these new donation levels will not take affect until July 1, 2010. New donation levels do not include ticket purchase.
