Many Illinois State students are facing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic. They are dealing with unprecedented disruptions to their personal life and their academic journey. Now, more than ever, they need support to stay on track toward graduation.

Alumni and friends have asked how they can help. You can join the effort by contributing to the COVID-19 Redbirds Response Fund, which will be used to help students meet immediate financial needs.

We might not know what lies ahead, but we do know that when Redbirds come together and rally behind our students, we are all strengthened. Redbirds respond when faced with adversity. Thank you for being an important part of the Redbird community.
