Reunion Giving

A class reunion year celebrates accomplishments, friendships, and memories from your class. This milestone year is capped off during Reunion/Homecoming Weekend in October. While back on-campus reliving your best years, or listening to stories of current students, please consider a gift to Illinois Wesleyan University. Support from alumni promotes IWU’s educational mission, provides scholarships to students, maintains the working condition of campus, and continues to provide a high quality education.

Reunion Giving Opportunities
A gift of any size to any designation within the 2021 milestone reunion giving period (August 1, 2020 - December 31, 2021) will count toward your reunion class giving total.

Gifts can be made in a number of ways:

  • One-time gifts: Making a one-time gift is fast and easy! See how to make a gift below.
  • Recurring gifts: Make your giving go further by scheduling recurring payments monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually.
  • Multi-year pledges: Multi-year commitments are a great way to support the IWU from your current reunion year to your next. Your pledge is included in your classes Reunion giving total. This option provides a lasting legacy to celebrate Titans everywhere.
  • Planned Giving: A simple and versatile way to ensure IWU fulfills its mission for years to come is by including IWU in your will or living trust (a caharitable bequest). Contact Michele Brady, Senior Director of Advancement Gift Planning at 309-275-0835 or mbrady@iwu.edu.

Please consider a Reunion Year Percentage Increase. Increasing your percentage of giving for a reunion year highlights your milestone in a big way! Percentage increases are based off reunion year. For example, a 10% increase for your 10th Class Reunion or a 35% increase for your 35th Class Reunion.
