Former President Donald Trump’s top donors are to be rewarded for their support while attending the Republican National Convention in July, according to new documents reviewed by CNBC.

A fundraising committee called Trump 47 offers its donors “major investor benefits,” according to a pamphlet. The document lists convention awards for Trump 47 Committee donors who raise up to $2.5 million or personally give between $24,000 and $844,600.

The committee raises money for the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, more than a dozen state parties and a political action committee that helps pay Trump’s legal bills.

The convention, which will officially nominate Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, is expected to take place in Milwaukee.

Donors who raise $2.5 million or give at least $844,600 to the Trump 47 Committee will receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the Fiserv Forum, where the convention will be held, as well as VIP tickets to private convention events and selective seating in the arena, according to the brochure.

Contributors to the committee who raise or donate at least $50,000 will receive a tour of the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, the document states. There will also be a private reception for these donors.

The gifts planned for Trump’s elite donors generally fall in line with what Democrats and Republicans have historically given their biggest benefactors for the celebratory event. It is unclear whether any of these donors will attend the convention.

An RNC spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment.

The wave of perks awarded to Trump’s top financial supporters comes after the former president recently raised millions at private events with the help of business executives who will now have the opportunity to tag along and dine at the convention.

Among those who have given at least $800,000 to the Trump 47 committee are Jeffrey Sprecher, CEO of Intercontinental Exchange, and his wife, former Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga. former Renaissance Technologies CEO Robert Mercer; Linda McMahon, former head of the Small Business Administration under Trump; and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

The committee has raised more than $23 million during the first quarter of 2024.
