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.
