You have a fantastic opportunity on Thursday, February 26, to show your Ithaca College pride and come together with the entire IC community to do great things for IC students. Why? Because February 26 is the first-ever IC Giving Day.

How It Works

Our goal is to secure 607 gifts -- a nod to our favorite area code -- in 24 hours from alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and other friends. If we reach that goal, a group of special alumni will give an additional $226,000 to help IC students. A matching gift of $26,000 will also be awarded to the school at IC with the highest level of participation based on its total number of alumni, parent, and student donors.

Additional opportunities to support schools will also be available throughout the day in the form of hourly competitions, which will be promoted via social media and other electronic means.

Student Employees perform an invaluable service with enthusiasm, dedication and initiative.  Along with our annual celebration of appreciation, that takes place in April, we will be honoring one Student Employee with an Ithaca College Student Employee of the Year Award.  Each Department will be allowed one student nomination. The Student Employment Office will begin accepting nominations immediately and continue to do so until March 15, 2015. All nominations must be completed online and contain the required documentation, noted below to be considered complete and eligible for the committee to review.  Ithaca College employs approximately 3,000 student employees each academic year and we know that selecting just one student nominee per department is a hard task. We highly suggest departmental committees for the nomination selection review.
