Patronage Checks Coming Soon!

 

We are excited to announce that we will be returning patronage refunds to our members over the next few weeks! If you are eligible to receive a refund, your check should arrive soon.

About the patronage program
At the end of each calendar year, E&I’s Board of Directors declares a patronage refund based on the Cooperative’s net income. The amount distributed to each member is based upon each institution’s relative contributions to the Cooperative’s gross income.


Patronage

At a time when member institutions continue to face the challenge of growing demands and budgetary constraints, the Cooperative’s contracts have continued to rise. This increased usage truly exemplifies the value of cooperative purchasing. We are incredibly thankful to all of you for this support.

For a detailed explanation of how patronage is calculated for each institution, please read our patronage brochure. If you have any further questions, please contact Anita Lipsky, E&I’s Associate Director of Contract Accounting, at alipsky@eandi.org.
