The Annual Fund finished the year with support from 10,151 alumni donors. The number of Annual Fund donors increased by 4.9 percent in FY13, which ended June 30.

Other giving highlights:

  • Faculty and staff giving reached a 35 percent participation rate — up 5 percent over last year.
  • The rebranded Senior Giving campaign, aimed at graduating students, reached an all-time high of 10 percent participation.
  • Total fundraising activity for FY13 was nearly $15 million in new cash and commitments. The exact total of $14,758,061 was the third largest fundraising year ever for Illinois State.

The Annual Giving staff, along with the entire University Advancement team, would like to thank all faculty and staff members for their help reaching these milestones. Every gift matters.
