Western Illinois Now
Western Illinois Now (WIN) is a program established in 1982 that provides supplemental funding for alumni activities, scholarships and improvements to the Alumni House. Thirty-three percent of your contribution helps support the Alumni Council/WIN scholarship; 50 percent serves as supplemental funding for various alumni functions across the United States and the rest of the contribution provides monies for improvements to the Alumni House.
How does this program help WIU?
WIU is state-assisted, not state-supported. State and federal appropriations together make up 60 percent of the University's total budget. The remaining funding comes from other sources. Specifically, your WIU Alumni Association relies on contributions from alumni and friends to help support its many programs.
Why should I donate?
The reasons are as varied as the people who give. The most important reason to donate is that each gift -- your gift -- will make a difference. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
How do I give?
You can send your check payable to WIU Foundation to: WIU Alumni Programs, 1 University Circle, Macomb, IL 61455. You can also make a contribution online.
