COUGAR PRIDE GIVING LEVELS
Corbin J. Robertson Society ($20,000 +) - The Corbin J. Robertson Society is committed to underwriting the current cost of one full athletic scholarship. In order for us to continue to meet the need of annual academic scholarship expenses for our student-athletes, this giving level will continue to grow as tuition and educational fees continue to rise. The current average cost of educating one Houston student-athlete has increased to over $20,000 for the 2014-15 academic year. Each member at this giving level is allowed to designate their scholarship to a specific sport. Members will serve as a sponsor for a scholarship student-athlete on that team and follow closely throughout his or her career.
*Legend's Club: ($15,000-$19,999) - Cougar Pride's long term goal is to fully fund all Houston student-athletes scholarships on an annual basis and continue growing the membership of the Corbin J. Robertson Society. The Legend's Club will provide an easier step for Cougar Pride members to increase their support to the Corbin J. Robertson level.
Commissioner's Circle: ($10,000-$14,999) - The conference commissioner presides over the American Athletic Conference. Each year, Houston athletic teams strive to win a conference regular season or tournament title. Each member of the Commissioner's Circle is as vital to Cougar Pride and the University of Houston as each member school is to the American Athletic Conference.
Platinum Club: ($7,500-$9,999) - The Platinum Club is Cougar Pride's newest giving level (in 2014-15). The road to success is long and requires many steps. The Platinum Club provides a new midpoint between two essential Cougar Pride giving levels the Commissioner's Circle and the Director's Circle. The Platinum Club is now the required level for reserved parking in the 12A Platinum lot for football.
Director's Circle: ($5,000-$7,499) - The Director of Athletics has many responsibilities including maintaining a forward vision and upward direction for the entire department. Many of Cougar Pride's most involved donors are at the Director's Circle making this giving level one of the most impactful giving levels.
Coach's Club: ($2,500-$4,999) - The Coach's Club is a dynamic level that represents the Houston head coaches' dedication and commitment to excellence.
All-American Club: ($1,000-$2,499) - All-American is one of the highest achievements a Houston student-athlete can attain. The All-American Club is the highest giving level associated with student-athlete individual achievement within the Cougar Pride structure.
All-Conference Club: ($500-$999) - The All-American Conference is one of the strongest athletic conferences in the country. All-Conference honors are annual crowning achievements that a Houston student-athlete can earn throughout his or her career. The All-Conference Club is representative of All-Conference honors.
Captain's Club: ($350-$499) - Team captain is an earned honor and responsibility given to a student-athlete via a team vote that exemplifies everything the team, athletic department, and university stands for. The Captain's Club is in place to represent team captain's honors.
Varsity Club: ($100-$349) - Each and every gift to Cougar Pride is incredibly important to Houston Athletics and each student-athlete. Once Houston student-athletes earn a varsity letter, he or she will forever be a Coog. The Varsity Club is Cougar Pride’s first giving level and represents all Houston student-athletes.
