#ALLIN4IC :: Day of Giving

2.26.2019

ALL IN FOR IC is a 24-hour online fundraising initiative encouraging alumni, parents and friends of Illinois College to make a gift to the IC Fund or toward student scholarships.

Together we have celebrated breakthroughs in academic innovation, made upgrades to our world-class learning facilities and experienced a 10-year high in enrollment. I am excited to see our extraordinary community again join forces to support our students by going ALL IN FOR IC.
President Barbara A. Farley

 All gifts made to the IC Fund on March 13 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Illinois College Board of Trustees. Funds raised will directly support student success with scholarships, improved academic programs, internships, study abroad, athletic opportunities and community engagement.

Last year’s inaugural Day of Giving was a record-setting event, attracting participants from across the country to raise more than $215,000. Illinois College President Barbara A. Farley says she hopes the college can continue building on the momentum of the past year. 
 
“Thanks to these generous contributions, our students have greater access to scholarships and hands-on learning opportunities,” she said. “Over the past year, Illinois College has grown to reach new heights of achievement. Together we have celebrated breakthroughs in academic innovation, made upgrades to our world-class learning facilities and experienced a 10-year high in enrollment. I am excited to see our extraordinary community once again join forces to support our students by going ALL IN FOR IC.” 

Those wishing to contribute to the daylong initiative can make a gift on March 13 at www.ic.edu/ALLIN4IC. More information will be available about the Day of Giving by following Illinois College on social media. All alumni, parents and friends throughout the world can get involved with the campaign and follow results in real-time online with live updates from campus and the chance to win prizes throughout the day.
