Hello ID Community:

As you may have seen through our emails and social media channels, ID Giving Day 2020 was scheduled for this Thursday, March 12, 2020. Giving Day is intended to be a day when we encourage the IIT Institute of Design community to come together to make a gift in support of our fellowships for our students.

With the current climate of concern in the US and across the world around the coronavirus (COVID-19), Illinois Tech has made the decision to not proceed with its Giving Day this spring as previously planned.

Any and all questions about this decision can be addressed to Joe Volin, Illinois Tech’s Senior Director of Constituent Engagement.
