TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Last year, Indiana State University raised over $1.33 million during its Give to Blue Day campaign.
ISU is hoping the community can help them achieve the same goal next week. On Wednesday, March 22nd, ISU will hold its 5th annual Give to Blue Day.
Give to Blue Day is a 24-hour day of giving, where people can donate to any area of ISU that they choose to support. The university is looking to raise over a million dollars again this year and hopes to inspire a couple of thousand donors to give, especially first-time donors.
“Really the goal for the day is to inspire people to maybe make their first gift back to Indiana State or just make a joyful gift to any area they choose to support whether it be student scholarships, athletics, faculty, or experiential learning,” said Andrea Angel, Vice President of University Advancement and CEO of the ISU foundation.
Over 15 businesses will be partnering with ISU this year. A percentage of their sales that day, or proceeds from ISU-themed products will benefit the university.
