Why Give

You move Ithaca College forward. When you give and when others give, big things happen.

That’s what IC Giving Day is about. It’s a single day in time, one whirlwind string of 24 consecutive hours when you make great things happen for IC students.

We need you on February 26. Why? Because you care enough to support the IC experience and the students whose lives you’ll change. It just couldn’t happen without you. But don’t worry—you’re not alone. You’ve got plenty of help.

When 100 people give $10, that’s $1,000.
When 100 people give $20, that’s $2,000.
When 100 people give $100, that’s $10,000.
