Thank a Giver Day to Celebrate Alumni Generosity

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Illinois Wesleyan University students will share their gratitude for the generous donors who make an IWU education possible during Thank a Giver (TAG) Day on Monday, Feb. 11.

TAG Day is celebrated each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70 percent of the way through – when tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, the endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.

Students are invited to write a note of thanks to donors at TAG Day tables in the Center for Natural Sciences and State Farm Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and in the Dugout at the Memorial Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students can also express their gratitude on social media using the hashtag: #IWUthanks.
