    Already renewed and paid for donation. Here's to the hope that come September 5th we are all at the Jack.

    I was going to do mine two weeks ago. I still plan on it but I’ll wait just in case if the season gets called.

    Renewed a while ago. Our first child is due in August so we had already figured we’d miss most of them anyway.

    Just an FYI, I emailed the ticket office with a couple of questions, one of which was:

    "Has there been any discussion as to what will happen if the season is canceled due to Covid-19? Will payments and donations be refunded or rolled over to next season? Thanks!"

    The answer:
    "If the season is canceled or any issues we’ll do refunds."

    Just in case anyone was curious.

    That's good to know. I was wondering whether to wait a little longer and hope for an official statement like this.

    If we pay our Cyclone Club donation and there is no football, does it become a tax deduction. No tickets were received for the donation. Too much time on my hands.

    NCC renewed, was waiting until closer to the deadline to do tickets. Will probably still wait a couple weeks. We've had the same seats since '08, I plan to die as the ticket holder for that block!

    Today, the ticket office confirmed that if games aren't played, they will refund any purchases made through them.

    If you use the "right" accountant it still is deductible ;)

    It is still technically a "donation". That's why there is a separate cost of the tickets vs your donation. It may play in to where you get to sit and park, but at the end of the day you don't need to make a donation to buy a football ticket, and you don't need to buy a football ticket to make a donation. Now, if you're donation gets refunded because the football season is cancelled...

    Seats secured for the 5th year...hopefully the season happens. Could see it push back a few weeks, especially if teams are delayed in starting up practices this summer.

    We are holding off on donation and ticket purchase as if no footgall season, dont think I would feel I owe the full annual amount of our current donation.

    ISU ticket office is closed. Can anyone confirm donations will be returned if you renew and the season does not go on or is played without fans?

    Why would donations be returned? Anyway, Cyclone Club handles the donations.

    Rather doubt that donations would be refunded. Especially since they also determine basketball seating, free tickets to gymnastics, etc.

    Would not be surprised to see people not increase and maybe decrease their donations

    There's an argument to be made that, particularly since they're no longer tax-deductible, that these aren't really donations at all but something closer to seat licenses. Many (most?) might not be "donating" if it weren't for their seats.

    I think the smart play for the athletic department would be to offer people their Cyclone Club donations back if they choose but campaign hard for people to leave them alone. I suspect most would do so anyway, and they would generate a lot of goodwill.

    I've paid some of my donation and half of my season tickets off but the card I used just expired so either way I will have to deal with that at some point but they did say my last ticket payment right now has been moved to June 1st so we will see what happens
