Geeze..  My schools, my fraternity, the boy scouts, my church, my alumni
associations, my old varsity sport, in fact, every orgaization that
solicits contributions uses this technique to give some recognition to
those that dig deeply into their pockets.  If some AMSAT people think this
technique is elitest, then I'm sorry, but I have no sympathy...

Give what you can give, but don't begrudge the others that are somehow
able to give more.
