    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Saluki Athletic Scholarship Fund is offering two new ways for Saluki fans to enhance their support for Southern Illinois University student-athletes.

    Fund members have the option on their renewal invoices to join the "110 Percent Club" or to "Take it to the Next Level." SASF members are encouraged to add an extra 10 percent to their annual SASF donation for 2014 or increase their donation to the next giving level.

    "We ask our Saluki student-athletes to give 110 percent in competition, in the classroom and in the community," said SASF director Gabe Tippy. "We're encouraging our donors to do the same."

    Those who join the 110 Percent Club will be entered into a drawing to receive an autographed Barry Hinson basketball, pre-game field passes for a home football game, two club passes for a football or basketball game, and lunch with the football coaching staff. Members who go up to a higher giving level will be eligible for a drawing that includes an autographed football and basketball, Under Armour team gear package, club passes and lunch with the men's basketball staff.

    Scholarship fund donations help cover the cost of scholarships for SIU's 350 student-athletes, and SASF members are eligible for priority seating and parking for football and men's basketball, as well as first priority for post-season tournament tickets and special events.

    The deadline to make your 2014 SASF donation is May 31.
