Make a Difference for Students Through Your Support for the Women’s Center
Your gifts to the Women’s Center will achieve so much for women (and men) at UIS:
You will help us celebrate the artistic, academic, and personal achievements of women at UIS. This fall we are planning an art show featuring the work of Lorena Johnson. We’ll hold the show in conjunction with our Love Your Body annual event where we encourage women to fight back against the idea that their bodies are somehow unacceptable and require constant improvement. For general gifts, please use this link to the Women’s Center Fund.
Your gifts also help to support the Women’s Peace and Friendship Garden, where each fall we honor the awardees of the Naomi B. Lynn Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women at UIS. We offer this garden for
everyone to visit as a place of beauty and peace. This link will allow you to donate to the Women’s Friendship Garden Fund.
Your gifts will “open the universe” to students who attend national women’s conferences. Conferences for women can change our student’s lives for years to come. You can support this and other special initiatives for women at UIS by giving to the Women’s Center Student Focus Fund.
Keeping Students Strong
The Women’s Center at UIS helps to promote a campus climate that is supportive, healthy, and respectful of all people. The Center does so through events such as Take Back the Night, presentations by nationally known speakers, and the Clotheline Project.
These events help to inspire confidence and empower students, and especially women, who might confront these issues disproportionately, to stand firm and together against anything that threatens their success at school.
Please join us in this important endeavor by making a gift to one of the above funds today.
