RE: Some off the field game day observations
I must be missing something here. Or there is a communication problem. In order to get a parking space in an NIU donor lot, don't you need to be a donor? If you are not a donor, it's park in the Convo lots, correct? So what is the difference between a tailgating space and a parking space?

Maybe I missed that. Only by request? I guess I assume as a season ticket holder, if that is part of the package, I shouldn't need to ask for them.

I donated $300 for a tailgating pass bought 2 East side tickets but still had to ask for the 2 endzone club passes. You have to ask for them because then your eligible tax deductible donation is reduced because you receive something in return.

If I had bought 5 East side season tickets I was eligible for up to 5 Endzone Club passes (5 X $55ea < $300 donation)

Not that I know of. I assumed 17Huskies tailgating spot was not a donor spot.

I'll admit I'm an idiot, but I don't recall receiving anything about that. Again, I could have missed it. And when I went to the HAF portion of the website, looking at benefits, it isn't listed.

So then anyone who has season tickets can get a pass to the Endzone Club? Gee, that place could get awfully crowded! Is that for the season? One game? Any game? Something is not right here.

No you have to be a donor of at least $55 for each season pass you ask for.

That gets you a book of tickets for Endzone Club for the season.


However, if you are not going to use them then don't request them because...
1. They will raise the donation cost if they see a spike in requests.
2. Your tax deductible donation will be reduced.


MANY HAF donors qualify for them but don't know they do and just have to ask for them.

Same thing goes for other benefits like the Nelson Club for the MBB games. Donors donate $2500 for a Zone A spot and only have 4 bench back seats ($600)...don't take advantage of also getting access to 2 Court Side seats/Nelson Club if they buy 2 MBB season tickets...or more WBB Court Side seats (don't see the cost for those yet). Even with that you still have enough for 4 Endzone club passes.
OR
Could get 4 Nelson Club only passes if you donate $100 more to $2600...but then I don't think you can get the endzone club passes.

Okay, then. So anyone who donates $55 to the HAF and has season tickets can get a season-long Endzone Club pass? Therefore, if I have four season tickets and donate a minimum of $220 to the HAF, I can get the Endzone Club passes for the season for no additional cost? If this is correct, people better take advantage of this. And, if this is correct, why is this not publicized?

Is the Coaches Club included with the Endzone Pass?

I agree it is really not clear on the website. The info was a tad clearer on the packet but unless you study the materials and ask many questions you really wont know. I told a HAF person back in March of 16 about how confusing it is and that people don't realize how many benefits are available to them for what they donate now or for just $100 or $200 more.
