“Clemson Family, we hope you will join us in this challenge. We hope our gift doesn’t just raise awareness of this campaign, but it inspires everyone to support Clemson. Every dollar will help us get this done faster.”

In September 2016, the Snow Family recognized it was time to accelerate fundraising efforts. Dave and Lynette offered to match up to $1 million in funds raised toward the project, bringing the Snow Challenge to life.

“We love this university, and we want to make a difference,” said Dave Snow. “To that end, we have a sense of urgency. We need more fields to accommodate the demands of intramural and club sports on this campus.”

That demand was clearly illustrated in 2015 when severe weather wreaked havoc on the school’s upper and lower intramural fields, largely a result of vehicle wear and tear stemming from gameday football parking.

The Snow Challenge was met in 2019 after more than $1 million in pledges had been received. To learn more about giving opportunities to the Snow Family project, click HERE.
