BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Illinois Wesleyan’s seventh annual day of giving saw 2,205 donors make 2,578 gifts to collectively raise $518,316, plus $258,000 from pacesetter challenge donors, for a grand total of $776,316.
Supporters helped to “unlock opportunities” for current and future Titans – while exceeding the $400,000 goal – during All In For Wesleyan on Thursday, April 11. Alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends of the University across the country and the world participated in making this a day for Titans to come together and show their pride through giving.
All In for Wesleyan is a 24-hour campaign dedicated to unlocking opportunities by generating financial support for student scholarships, research, experiential learning, updated technology and much more. It also serves as a spirit day for current students. This year’s student activities included a kickoff pep rally, free T-shirts and food, a karaoke night and more.
Donors who may have missed out on this year’s All In for Wesleyan can still show their support by visiting www.IWU.edu/giving.
