Priority Points Examples

The examples below determine total priority points based on several scenarios of contributions made to the Razorback Foundation.

Example:

Pork Chop is a Tush Hog member with an Annual Fund contribution of $1,000 per year. He has given to the Annual Fund consistently every year since 1980, meaning his total contribution to the Annual Fund is $33,000. He has also donated an additional $100 to the Tusk Fund.

Example:

Boss Hog has been a member at the Super Hog level for the past eight years. He currently gives $3,500 to the Annual Fund and has made a $50,000 gift to the Never Yield Capital Campaign. His lifetime contribution to the Annual Fund is $28,000.

 
Example:

Ribby is a brand new Razorback Foundation member. She gave a $2,500 Annual Fund gift to baseball. Her Annual Fund membership classification is a Wild Hog.

Example:

Mr. and Mrs. Razorback have been Broyles-Matthews Silver members for 13 years. They have contributed $5,000 each year for a total Annual Fund contribution of $65,000. They also made a capital gift of $150,000 for the new Basketball Practice Facility. Mrs. Razorback is a former student-athlete.

Improving Your Rank with Priority Points

By expanding the ways the Foundation recognizes support of Razorback Athletics, the Razorback Priority Points Program will help members improve their rank within their membership class in many new ways. Longtime members will be acknowledge for their loyalty while new and existing members can improve their rank by making contributions outside of the Annual Fund. Former Razorback student-athletes will be further rewarded for their contributions on the field and in the classroom.

Moving to a higher membership class may only be accomplished by increasing total gifts to the Annual Fund; however, the Razorback Priority Points Program creates multiple opportunities for members to continually improve their rank within their membership class. See examples of these opportunities below.

Note: Regardless of the total priority points a member has accumulated, member benefits will be allocated first by membership class, then a member’s rank within their membership class, working from top to bottom (Super Hogs, then Wild Hogs, then Tush Hogs, etc.).

Consecutive Years of Giving Points

Under the new Razorback Priority Points Program, current members receive five points for each consecutive year contributions are made to the Annual Fund. For loyal members, these points make a significant difference in your rank within your current membership class. See the example below to understand how consecutive giving points improve your rank in comparison to how benefits have been allocated in the past.

Example:

Pork Chop is a Tush Hog member with an Annual Fund contribution of $1,000 per year. He has been a loyal member since 1980 and has donated an additional $250 to the Tusk Fund.

 
Points for Major Gifts

For Foundation members who want to improve their rank within their membership class, major gifts can increase your rank significantly as they are assigned a value of one point per $100 donated. See the example below to understand how a major gift can improve your rank.

Example:

Sooie is a brand new Razorback Foundation member. She just gave a $1,500 Annual Fund gift to women’s sports and her classification is a Tush Hog. She will potentially make a large contribution to the Never Yield campaign and wants to know how this would impact her rank within the Tush Hog class.
