CAF Priority Allocation

 

MEMBER BENEFIT ALLOCATION PROCESS

A priority structure allows for the Cougar Athletic Fund (CAF) to objectively reward loyal and generous annual fund members for supporting WSU student-athletes.

As of July 1, 2019, priority on season tickets and upgrades, parking, postseason tickets, away game tickets, and other member benefits will be allocated by annual giving level first then CAF rank within each giving level.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Donor A – Champions Circle Member ($25,000+), CAF Rank: 1,452

Donor B – Leadership Circle Member ($10,000-$24,999), CAF Rank: 249

Donor D – Ambassador Club Member ($5,000-$9,999), CAF Rank: 2,500

Donor E – Leadership Circle Member ($10,000-$24,999), CAF Rank: 2,499

Priority assigned in order: Donor C, Donor A, Donor B, Donor E, Donor D.
