    Ok thanks. We haven't released numbers in a few years but it's in the 2K range. We lost several hundred during the Summers years. And lost like 1000+ season ticket holders. I think we are around 6,000. Where are you?

    I doubt it. They raised less the $1 million is booster contributions than we did last year.

    Yeah, that’s one thing we could have on App. If we win this year we will have more Top25 wins than them.

    they have 3,000, we have a whopping 2,000. Straight up pitiful. But what the heck fire everybody.

    I'm not sure what GS's booster donations were last year. App's were just over $4 million. If y'all are pulling in $5 million in donations, please share how you're accomplishing that. Like GS, App is always looking for ways to broaden our donor base and increase donations. It's definitely an uphill climb.

    Here's what the USA Today report lists for contributions (in millions) for 2016, 2017, and 2018.

    GS: 3.9, 4.0, 3.7
    App: 3.8, 2.9, 4.6

    So for those years we're ahead bout $300k.

    Good. They excluded the $10 million gift we got from one donor in 2017 (FYE June 30, 2018). Those figures still put GS $100k per year ahead of App. I'd love to know how you've had success with getting new donors. It sounds like both schools have plenty of folks who are delighted to be vocal but not so delighted to donate real dollars.

    We keep trying with programs. We have a new graduate program that is for anyone who has graduated in the last 4 years. Can't find the current details but for $50 I think it used to include free general admission for all football games. It goes up annually until you reach $120. Each of the 3 big sports has a alumni program for former players and managers. Same thing, you donate x and you get free GA tickets for the season and a nice polo. There is a referral program where current donors can earn perks for recruiting new donors. IMO it really comes down to winning at football. There is also a big booster recruiting tool where if you commit to $10K/5 years you are in the Champions level. It's a small group but growing.
