Phi Kappa Phi is a national collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines that follows the motto “let the love of learning rule humanity.”  In honor of this phrase, the Ithaca College chapter of Phi Kappa Phi will be holding a book drive on campus.  Book drives are a way to draw attention to the importance of literacy and gather crucial resources for community members who would otherwise have limited access to them. All books collected will be donated to IC Books Thru Bars, a student-run program that provides books to incarcerated persons in New York State prisons. 

Help make this book drive a success by donating a new or gently used book. It's an easy way to make a big difference!

  • Collection bins can be found around campus from Monday, March 2nd to Friday, March 20th.

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.
