WHY GIVE?

YOU WANT EIU
TO REMAIN CUTTING EDGE

Eastern prepares more undergraduates who go on to earn doctoral degrees than any other master's college/university in Illinois, according to a recent National Science Foundation survey. In addition to ranking first in the state, EIU ranks in the top 5 percent nationwide. EIU is the first choice for more than 75 percent of new students in the Honors College, which attracts some of the best and brightest in the state. Our alumni satisfaction rate is 98 percent after one year from graduation and 99 percent after nine years from graduation.

YOU WANT
TO MAKE AN IMPACT

Every gift made to EIU makes a difference—whether it is big or small. The "ripple effect" of each donation is amazing to watch and inspires giving in others.

YOU BELIEVE
EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT

Many students attending EIU are eager to attain a college degree, but most cannot afford to pay for their education on their own. At Eastern Illinois University, 54.4 percent of full-time undergraduates receive grants, scholarships and waivers and 60 percent received some form of financial aid. Without generous donors like yourself, many students would not be able to fulfill their dreams of graduating from EIU.
