Leathernecks, TODAY is your day!
Western Illinois University stands to receive $10,000 in student financial assistance if 1,000 people make a gift to any area of our University before midnight on Monday April 24.
To honor her late husband and Marine Corps veteran, Ted Nelson '51, and her Leatherneck family, Kate Nelson has made a generous pledge to encourage Leathernecks everywhere to make today a transformative day for students!
Be sure to take advantage of our numerous challenges and matching gift opportunities (or issue your own) and make sure your state is represented on our "Leatherneck Nation" donor map!
Don't forget to use the social media toolkit to to help spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
