Q: What’s the difference between Membership Level and Priority Points?
A: There are eight different membership levels. Your annual giving total will determine your membership level. This will be the first consideration in determining priority assignment of benefits. Within each membership level, donors will be ranked based on his or her cumulative priority points. Priority points are a second ranking method to create a fair process when distributing benefits to its members.

Q: How do I earn Priority Points?
A: Five points will be given for every dollar donated to athletics before November 1, 2014. Three points will be given for every dollar donated for the current year unrestricted to the EAF. One point will be given for every dollar donated for the current year “other” athletic giving (sport specific). Five hundred points will be awarded one-time to anyone who served as a fund drive volunteer in the past.

Q: If I don’t donate for the current year will I still have my priority points?
A: Yes, priority points are cumulated over your lifetime.

Q; If I don’t donate for the current year will I still be considered a member & receive benefits?
A: No, a member must donate for the current year to be eligible for benefits for that current year. Anyone who does not donate will not be considered a member for that specific year.

Q: What if I have more priority points than a member in a higher membership level?
A: Priority Points only rank donors with in a membership level. A person can be in the Bronze Eagle membership level and have more priority points than a person in the Silver Eagle membership level, however the person in the Silver Eagle membership level will be considered first when assigning benefits on priority. If both donors are in the Bronze Eagle membership level, the member with more priority points will be considered first in priority assignment.

Q: How can I find how many priority points I have?
A: You can visit our website www.goeags.com and log into your account to find your current amount.

Q: Why do EAF unrestricted donations get more points than EAF restricted donations?

Q: Can I give on behalf of a family or friend member?
