Monday, February 8 is Thank-A-Giver Day at Illinois Wesleyan and we’re eager to celebrate generous Titans!

Thank-A-Giver (TAG) Day is the symbolic point during the academic year — about 70% of the way through — when tuition dollars are exhausted and Illinois Wesleyan relies on donor generosity to continue providing a world-class education and rewarding collegiate experiences.

Each and every year, every gift matters. Contributions benefit students and faculty, enhance academic excellence, and strengthen the IWU community.

Thank you to all who give back to move IWU forward.

Erin Zerth ‘03 and Erin Guth started the Chicago Area COVID-19 Front Line Hero Meal Trains program.

The online system sets up times for meals to be delivered to hospitals. Strict rules on delivery and packaging made the two women enlist help from local restaurants.

Donors give money, which helps those shops pump out orders and feed first responders on the front lines.
