I’d like to echo Steve’s comments. This time of year, most of us are deluged with appeals from worthy causes. In addition, many of us volunteer with nonprofit organizations that play vital roles in our local communities. But a gift to Illinois Wesleyan is different, because higher education is different–it’s an investment in the future of our greater society and our global community. Strong alumni support sends a personal message to today’s students who are walking the same pathways you did. Please consider a gift to IWU as part of your year-end giving plans.
