Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is on Monday, February 11, 2019. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank the 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 tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.
Thank you to all donors who help make the IWU experience possible!
