Get Ready for #SIUDAY

On Wednesday, March 1, the SIU community will unite for the inaugural SIU Day of Giving. This 24-hour fundraising drive gives alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends from around the globe the opportunity to come together and celebrate SIU.

Support any of the areas of the university listed at the bottom of this page. These funds will make an immediate difference in the lives of current and future Salukis.

Also, thanks to a group of generous donors, when you make a gift March 1, you’ll earn bonus funds for the area of your choice.
