The term might be cliché, but the principle behind giving 110% is not. Each and every day we ask our student-athletes to perform at their very highest level on the field, court or track and in the classroom, all while asking them to represent Wichita State University in a manner that will make us all proud. Many of these student-athletes truly give all they have to Wichita State and when asked to give a little more, they dig deep and find a way. These student-athletes exemplify what it means to give 110%.
The 110% Club is an opportunity for each of our Shocker Athletic Scholarship Organization members to directly impact the educational needs of our student-athletes. As the cost of tuition and academic support needs continue to soar, the funding shortfall gap continues to widen. The slight increases in SASO giving levels do not keep pace with the increases the WSU Athletics Department incurs for student-athlete academic support expenses.
Benefits to the 110% Club include:
- Coupon for four single game tickets to one volleyball, women’s basketball, softball and baseball game
- Exclusive 110% Club window decal
- Exclusive 110% Club reception
- Recognition in the baseball and men’s basketball game programs
You may voluntarily join the 110% Club by simply donating 10% above the minimum for your membership level or 10% above your 2012-13 donation amount, whichever is higher. For example, if you are a Bold Gold member your 110% Club gift to SASO would be $1,644.50 (10% more than the minimum Bold Gold membership amount of $1,495). If you participated in the 110% Club for the first time in 2012-13, your 110% Club donation would be $1,687.95 (10% more than your 110% gift last year). You may designate your entry into the 110% Club by simply checking the 110% Club box on your SASO renewal form.
Thank you for considering how you can answer the call and give 110% back to our student-athletes!
