We Redbirds fly together! Support Redbirds Rising: The Campaign for Illinois State, and join the effort to help our university rise to new heights of excellence.

The goal will be achieved through private gifts from alumni, friends, faculty staff, students, corporations, and foundations. We invite you to Rise with the Honors Program as we continue to provide exceptional experiences for our students. As always, you can contribute directly to Honors through the Redbird Rising campaign. Your donations will help continue to support our Honors students academically and programmatically.

Want a unique way to give back to Honors? Please consider donating to our new “Lending Library,” which is part of our student lounge space, “The Nest.”  Share your favorite book, or a book that made an impact on your life, with current students. Send your book(s) to
