Each year, Ohio State coaches recruit future generations of Buckeyes who desire to commit to the Scarlet and Gray. With Buckeye Nation extending far beyond the confines of campus, you can assist The Buckeye Club in its recruiting process.
The Buckeye Club Referral Program has been designed to reward our current members for bringing new members to The Buckeye Club. With every $10 contributed to Ohio State Athletics equaling one point in the priority point structure, those cumulative points make a difference when selecting season tickets, season parking, away and post season ticket allocation.
To meet The Buckeye Club’s goal of increasing membership while further providing world-class resources to our dedicated student-athletes, members will have the ability to earn additional Priority Points based on the membership level of new members they refer. Point bonuses are based on the membership level of the new donor and are broken down in the charts below.
|Buckeye Club Membership Level of New Member||Point Credit Received by Member That Makes the Referral (Per New Member)|
|Horseshoe Level||$50-$499||2.5 Points|
|Scarlet Level||$500-$1,499||25 Points|
|Gray Level||$1,500-$2,999||75 Points|
|B1G Champions Level||$3,000-$5,999||150 Points|
|National Champions Level||$6,000-$11,999||300 Points|
|Scholar Athlete Level & above||$12,000+||600 Points|
|Hall of Fame Level||$50,000|
