Day of Giving 2021

SIU Day of Giving

Today is #SIUDay of Giving

#SIUDay of Giving is March 2! We are counting on you to once again show your support for the school of medicine. We believe that every gift matters, no matter the size as it shows your support of our mission of better health for all. 

Thanks to you, our generous donors and alumni, we were able to raise the most money and secure the most gifts by an academic unit at SIU last year. Be part of #SIUDay of Giving on March 2 and help us reach our goal and keep the trophies! 

Gifts may be made online by clicking the Donate button below. If there is a fund you wish to donate to not listed online, you may contact the Foundation office by email or by calling 217.545.2955

Why give?

We are dedicated to teaching the doctors of tomorrow and to conducting ground-breaking research. Both of these endeavors require significant financial support. 

Your donation of any amount can help provide scholarships for students, fund groundbreaking research, provide patient care or support equity, diversity and inclusion. No gift amount is too small and helps us move forward together.

Get involved.

You can help us move forward together by making a donation of any amount to any fund of choice on March 2 and by letting others know why you are participating in #SIUDay of Giving.

Every gift tells a story. What's yours?

Whether it’s to honor an experience, to address an urgent need or to be a part of an extraordinary day, there’s a story behind every gift made on Day of Giving.

And it doesn’t end there. Support from donors like you empowers our students to craft their own stories, perspectives and paths. It spurs the next chapter in groundbreaking research. It turns a new page in how we teach and learn.

Join us. Together, we can tell the story of SIU Medicine's bright, bold future.
