Why Scholarships Are Crucial to EIU


There are three options to give towards the 2015 Faculty/Staff Campaign. This includes the following:

EIU Community Commitment to Excellence Scholarship Fund Endowment

The purpose of this type of gift allows for ongoing support for the EIU Community Commitment to Excellence Scholarship Fund. Once the minimum endowment level of $25,000 is reached then the funds would be used to supplement the Commitment to Excellence Award on a yearly basis. The Commitment to Excellence Award is currently funded with appropriated funds.

EIU Community Commitment to Excellence Award Annual Scholarship (Cash In/Cash Out)

The purpose of this type of gift is to fund the scholarships via the cash in/cash out approach. The gift would also be used to supplement the Commitment to Excellence Award, but the scholarship funding would only be available as the gifts are received.

Other

The purpose of this option is to keep open the possibilities to make your yearly gifts towards the areas that you support and want to continue to support. You can give to any area, scholarship or fund and know that your generous gift will support our students.

*****

The first 300 gifts received for the EIU Community Commitment to Excellence Scholarship (Endowment or Cash In/Cash Out) in the amount of $100.00 or more will receive an ornament made from the bur oak tree which stood outside of Old Main. Once we have received the first 300 gifts, you will be notified through email that your ornament may be picked up.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
