Anyone interested in supporting SIUE student-athletes' success on the playing field, in the classroom and in the community can join.

The goals of the Cougar Excellence Fund are to provide student-athletes with opportunities to realize their full potential; to create athletic and academic opportunities for student-athletes; and to increase amenities offered in order to attract the best and brightest student-athletes.

As the Cougars compete on a national stage, and now as a fully certified member of NCAA Division I, your support will help ensure the continued success of student-athletes both on and off the field. Private gifts are essential to advancing Cougar Athletics.

SIUE student-athletes, coaches, staff and supporters are redefining excellence by displaying the qualities that come from hard work, knowledge, determination, and the pride in the University and community.

The traits encompassed in the people surrounding SIUE Intercollegiate Athletics exude excellence, the quality of being outstanding. This, in turn, makes excellence a synonym for the SIUE athletics programs.

Be part of the Cougar Excellence Fund, be part of excellence.
