Section Incentive Program

In 2015, AGU piloted a donor incentive program that provides unrestricted funding to Sections based on the number of qualified individual donations to any AGU fund by the group’s primarily affiliated members.

We are pleased that we will be continuing this program in 2018.

A contribution of $50 or greater is required to qualify as an individual donor. This contribution can be allocated to any AGU fund, not just Section funds. Funds from employer matching-gift programs will be credited toward the individual donor/employee.

Due to Sections’ varying membership sizes, the incentive program will be based on the rate of participation by members primarily affiliated with each group as of 31 December 2018, not the total number of participating members.

The program’s financial incentives are as follows:

  • 5% participation from primary affiliated members – $1,000 contribution from AGU to your Section
  • 7% participation primary affiliated members – $2,000 contribution from AGU to your Section
  • 10% participation primary affiliated members – $3,000 contribution from AGU to your Section
  • 12% participation primary affiliated members – $4,000 contribution from AGU to your Section
  • 15% or greater participation primary affiliated members – $5,000 contribution from AGU to your Section
