Redbirds Rising: The Campaign for Illinois State will enable the University to achieve three critical outcomes: educating tomorrow's leaders, graduating globally aware and socially engaged citizens, and sparking continuous creativity and innovation. To advance these objectives, we offer multiple ways to support the Mennonite College of Nursing within our key funding categories.
The college has identified four key priorities which are highlighted below. To further explore these objectives, please refer to our Campaign Case Statement.
Endowed scholarships, either merit- or need-based, are essential to maintaining our affordability and ability to attract talented students.
Nursing faculty are in high demand. Endowed professorships can help the College attract and retain gifted, dedicated faculty to mentor our nursing leaders, pursue innovative research, and lead community health initiatives.
State-of-the-art equipment and learning spaces will allow our students to experience realistic health care encounters, and practice high-risk skills in a low-risk environment.
Health care is moving out of the hospital and into the community. The College must be able to respond quickly when opportunities arise that can benefit our students and faculty while enhancing our reputation as a leader for healthier communities. Support for the College's annual fund allows us to turn rapid change to our advantage.
Gifts of all sizes make an impact on our students, faculty, programs, and facilities. Beyond the monetary gift, outright gifts such as securities, real estate, and gifts-in-kind are other ways you can make a difference. Contact us today to discuss giving options.
