Redbirds make an impact, it’s what they do. They invest in communities, strive to make the world a better place, and give a hand-up when those around need it most. This year, Illinois State University wants Redbirds to show the world how they care by being a part of #RedbirdImpact Month and reaching our goal of 250 service hours.
Alumni and friends can join a Redbird scheduled #RedbirdImpact service project including a special day on campus. Can’t make it to one of those scheduled activities? Register any volunteer hours between now and the end of June to help reach the 250-hour goal. Each time an alum or friend submits hours, they will also be entered to win the summer impact prize that will include items to enjoy a relaxing day outside after working hard to make a #RedbirdImpact.
Redbirds can also make a #RedbirdImpact with a gift to the area of campus they are most passionate about. Help reach the University reach its goal of 500 donors too! Find out which areas of campus want to make a #RedbirdImpact by visiting the #RedbirdImpact website.
