Why Give?

What the Senior Class is thankful for.

We hope you will pay your scholarships forward for future students like us! Here are a few reasons giving to the College helps future students and you. 

1. Tuition and Fees cover 62% of the cost of educating each student per year. The rest is made up by grants and contributions from alumni and friends of the College. 

2. Over 90% of students at C of I receive financial aid. Aid that would not be possible without alumni support. 

3. When alumni donate ANY AMOUNT, it raises the alumni participation rate for the current fiscal year and helps the College secure grant funding and higher rankings. 

In other words, making a gift of $20 each year could help bring in thousands of dollars in grant money and make your degree more valuable by increasing our rankings.
