The Eagle Fund is the GSU Athletic Foundation’s annual drive for donations to support the yearly scholarship commitment. Your gift provides an avenue for one of our 400 student-athletes to receive an education, and further his or her pursuit of our vision, “Rings and Diplomas.”
Simply put, without private support, these young adults would not be able to obtain a scholarship from Georgia Southern University. Your gift makes a crucial difference in a young person’s life.
Check with your employer’s Human Resource department to find out if your company participates in a matching gift program. If they do, inquire about how to obtain the appropriate form to send along with your cash donation.
Your company’s matching gift program may contain a provision to match athletic foundation donations. Some company matches will range from 25% up to three times the gift amount. All matching funds are credited to the donor’s annual giving total for the year.

Priority points are given in recognition of the support of our Eagle faithful, both donors and season ticket holders, who accumulate individual point totals based on the following criteria:
|How you acquire points:|
|Consecutive Years' Contribution to the Eagle Fund*||2 points per year|
|Current Year Eagle Fund Contribution||1 point per $100|
|Consecutive Years' Football Season Tickets*||1 point per year|
|Consecutive Years' Men's Basketball Season Tickets*||1 point per year|
|Consecutive Years' Baseball Season Tickets*||1 point per year|
|Eagle Fund Donor Recruitment||1 point per member|
*Consecutive years’ points are calculated beginning with the current year and working backward.
*Season ticket purchases are calculated from 1990 to the present.
*Ticket availability is based on the number of tickets allotted to Georgia Southern for each specific event.
To more equitably serve our Eagle Fund donors, a priority point system has been implemented to fairly determine priority in parking allocation and in acquiring high demand tickets. Away games at Navy (2010) and Alabama (2011), and post-season tournaments and other special events are examples.
**Points are based on 2009 and prior annual donations
Lend your support and receive the best tickets. Eagle Fund donors are given priority on ticket availability and seat locations for all GSU athletic events. This priority component is used in determining tickets for away-games or post-season games. The ticket purchase priority ensures that those who support and buy tickets are awarded the best tickets available through the university.
