Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is Monday, February 10. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when we rely on support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants.  

If you would like to be celebrated as a donor today, you can make a gift at iwu.edu/give

Thank you to Shannon O’Rourke Kasali ’07, who spoke at our Evelyn Chapel on 1/29/20 with two other alumni about the ways they experienced their work and commitments as a calling, how they’ve navigated failure and celebrated successes, how they’ve discovered a deeper purpose to their work, how their passions and callings have changed over time and how their beliefs (religious, spiritual, secular) have shaped their lives.
