    Trustees Circle: $10k or more- 8
    President's Circle: $5k to $10k- 7
    Directors Circle: $2.5k to 4.999k- 27
    Coaches Circle: $1k to $2.499k- 105
    Big Bear: $500 to $999- 87
    Purple Bear: $300 to $499- 31
    Gray Bear: $100 to $299- 50

    Don't you think our Athletic Department could spend a few more hours hitting the donations for the lower levels? Seriously this shows me they don't hunt down those dollars. It's a shame.
    I mentioned we had 250 of 842 that gave a thousand or more. That leaves a pretty sizable number that donated at lower levels. Here's a complete breakdown. Numbers have shifted slightly since this was done, but proportion remains about the same. This is the first time since I have been following ACU athletics that we have made any sort of organized effort to go after smaller donors. The focus in the past has been on the 250k and up crowd and lettermen. No one else really seemed to matter. Our new AD is changing the culture.

    • W Level ($20,000 or more): 36 members
    • I Level ($10,000-$19,999): 29 members
    • L Level ($5,000-$9,999): 33 members
    • D Level ($2,500-$4,999): 24 members
    • C Level ($1,000-$2,499): 107 members
    • A Level ($500-$999): 90 members
    • T Level ($250-$499): 99 members
    • S Level ($100-$249): 285 members

    I guess we do technically have a benefit for donors in terms of season tickets...donate over $100 and you get first dibs on tickets: http://goleathernecks.com/documents/...DF_3_14_17.jpg

    That's fantastic. 285 members in the $100-$249 range. That's the difference between eventually getting a new stadium and constantly whining to your donors that they don't give enough. Time for us to hire away your A.D.

    Mostly new graduates. Watch em move up as their income goes up....and 100 x 285 will buy new uniforms for golf or tennis...

    It will be interesting to do a year to year comparison. We just started. Not sure how many renewals there will be, how many will give more/less this year, whether as the new stadium opens if we can expand the numbers beyond 1,000. Gonna be fun to watch.

    Season Tickets run $125 General Public, $105 Faculty/Staff, $75 Youth, and $60 Young Alumni (good for 5 years after graduation).

    Weisbecker Scholarship Fund is the Scholarship Donation arm -

    $500/seat for Club
    $100/seat for Midfield
    $50/seat between the 30-40's
    $0/seat from the 30's to the End Zone
    Suites are undisclosed

    Give $250 to the WSF and you get a parking pass and so on (you have 4 season tickets, want 2 passes, will need to give $500 to WSF). General Public Lots are $10/game.

    Would be nice to know the breakdown of the # of donor's in each level like ACU. We can see our priority rank among all WSF Donor's/Season Ticket Holders but have no idea how many are still active or just gave 1 year.

    Has it only been 3 years since all season tickets required a Team Makers membership? I had season tickets back in 1995 and the best seats I could get without being in Team Makers were on the 5 yard line.

    NDSU season tickets themselves are $250 for sideline seats and $190 for endzone seats but booster dues are anywhere from $25 to $2750 per seat. Here's the chart with the breakdown in prices: http://www.gobison.com/documents/201...17.pdf?id=3170

    Every season ticket is sold which amounts to about 12,500 I believe and there's 1000+ requests (not tickets but requests) on the waiting list. NDSU does still sell about 1500 tickets per game as single game tickets (every seat except for those in the student section is reserved) and they do allow athletic boosters who don't have season tickets to request 2 tickets for up to 4 games (8 total tickets) so for the prime games most every seat is gone before it truly hits the "general public".

    This is either the 2nd or 3rd year that all football season tickets have had a Team Maker due associated with them but I don't recall for sure. I'm midway up behind the endzone so my seats were part of the last group to have a Team Maker due attached to them. It's only $25 per seat where I'm at (which is less per seat than it is for men's basketball season tickets for some reason ).
