The purpose of the Alumni Priority Fund is to connect and support alumni with each other and the university. Because the Alumni Association does not operate on a membership model, alumni are able to provide support to the university through the Priority Fund at whatever level and frequency they are able.
Why Give to the Priority Fund?
The Priority Fund allows the Alumni Association to prioritize what matters most to our alumni: cultivating the alumni community and supporting current students. The impact of Bobcats' collective giving power helps foster the growth of the alumni network while enhancing the reputation of the university and increasing the value of your degree.
Cumulative giving to the Alumni Priority Fund adds up to benefit you, too! When the total amount you have given to the fund reaches $1,000 (or $500 for alumni who have graduated in the last five years), you automatically join an exclusive group of alumni – the Forever Bobcats. As you work your way toward this special recognition, you’ll also be making a difference in the Bobcat community.
