Press Release

TAF and LSU Athletics Launch 2022 Renewals

The Tiger Athletic Foundation and LSU Athletics are excited to announce several updates beginning in 2022 designed to both simplify the season ticket renewal process and the priority point system.

Beginning this season, TAF will only send annual renewals for Team TAF memberships, premium seating contributions, and other philanthropic gifts. All general seating and parking contributions will now run through the LSU Ticket office.

In addition to renewal format adjustments, TAF has also simplified the priority point calculation process by merging the former multiplier system and bonus point structure. This new format will provide a simplified process for donors while also better aligning with the current needs of LSU Athletics. There are now only five different calculations:

  • 1x point per $1,000 for all donations to the Tradition Fund, Premium Seating contributions, LSU Foundation, LSU Alumni Association, LSU Health Sciences Foundations, and the Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation. 
  • 2x points per $1,000 for all donations to Booster Clubs, Excellence Funds, and Philanthropic Funds outside of Capital Projects, the AD’s Excellence Fund, or Scholarship Endowments.
  • 4x points per $1,000 for all donations to Team TAF, which directly support LSU student-athlete scholarships.
  • 5x points per $1,000 for donations between $25,000 - $99,999 towards Capital Projects, the AD’s Excellence Fund, or Scholarship Endowments (pledged over a 5-year period).
  • 6x points per $1,000 for donations of $100,000 or more towards Capital Projects, the AD’s Excellence Fund, or Scholarship Endowments (pledged over a 5-year period).

With the new system, the following additional point opportunities will not be impacted.

  • Planned Gift: 5 points
  • LSU Varsity Letter Winner (1-time credit): 5 points
  • Collegiate Club & Recent Grad members: 1 point per year
  • Consecutive years of giving (10, 20, 30 years): 3, 5, and 7 points

The new priority point calculations are effective for new gifts as of January 1, 2022. These calculations are not retroactive for gifts prior to January 1. We are currently updating our point calculator online to ensure these changes will apply to all future gifts. The priority point calculator is currently under construction and points will not be visible until completed.

Finally, we are excited to announce that all donations to the Team TAF annual fund will no longer go to TAF operations. Instead, 100% of these funds will now directly support LSU Athletics by providing funds to help offset the cost of student-athlete scholarships — impacting all 21 sports and more than 500 student-athletes.
