Wednesday, April 21, 2021 is EIU Giving Day and I need all EIU alumni to donate and assist our students financially!
Scholarships are awarded annually and I depend on our gatherings on EIU's campus to assist in those endeavors. Unfortunately because of our current circumstances, we could not fellowship on campus but I NEED YOU! We are looking for every alum to donate $25 (or whatever you can) to assist our students.
Scholarships are crucial along with the programming we do to help our students, so please GIVE BACK to make this educational endeavor extraordinary for our students. (You remember when you were here!)
As always, we are all in for EIU,
Executive Director, Office of Inclusion & Academic Engagement
