Priority Point Program - Michigan Athletics
In partnership with the Michigan Athletic Department, gifts to The Elbel Club will receive equal point value as gifts made to the Athletic Department as part of the Priority Points Program.
The Priority Points Program is a comprehensive measure of your support for the University and Athletic Department. It provides a framework for the equitable allocation of tickets, parking and other benefits based on annual giving level and priority point rankings within those levels.
Priority points are calculated on a fiscal year basis and your benefits are earned in arrears. Donations between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 determine your benefits for the 2019-20 season.
**You begin accumulating points (including alumni points) after your first gift to Michigan Athletics.

Priority Points are assigned as follows:
1 Point – Athletic Donations
One point is awarded for every $100 in lifetime giving to the Michigan Athletic Department, including Preferred Seat Donations.
