The Gift of Education: Made possible by you.

Through the generosity of donors, the College of Liberal Arts is able to support across the College, scholarships and awards for students, assist students and faculty to present their work at professional meetings, enhance our facilities, and underwrite aspects of student and faculty research. We greatly appreciate every contribution we receive. The Foundation is a designated 501(c)(3) organization with appropriate approval from the Internal Revenue Service to issue tax-deductible receipts for private gifts received to support Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
