Ashland University's athletic department's Eagler Club has recently been revamped.
Under the direction of Kyle Vaughn, AU Associate Director of Athletics Development, the Eagler Club's membership form and donor benefits have been updated. On the new membership form in the brochure (PDF above), donors can designate which program he or she would like to give to, and there are seven donor levels – fan (up to $99), starter ($100-249), captain ($250-499), MVP ($500-999), champion ($1,000-2,499), Tuffy ($2,500-4,999) and Hall of Fame ($5,000+).
At certain levels, membership benefits include discounts at the Ashland Campus Store, complimentary admission to home ticketed events, special access to the VIP Room in the Robert Troop Center and the new Rinehart Room in the Physical Education Center, a special invitation to attend a home football game in the President's loge, and more.
"In my role, I reviewed giving opportunities that already exist within the athletic department," Vaughn said. "The Eagler Club has been around since 1970, but we have not treated it as a 'club' in years. I wanted to create something that allows our AU athletic supporters the opportunity to be a part of this club and support the program important to him or her."
Since 1970, the Eagler Club has been providing Ashland University Athletics with the financial support needed to be one of the best athletic programs in NCAA Division II. In 2019, Ashland finished ninth in the 2018-19 Learfield IMG College Directors' Cup standings, earning its 10th top-10 finish in Division II since the Directors' Cup began in 1995-96.
