Event Description

2 Days to Make a Different – Pay it Forward

Pay it Forward is about “students helping students.”  It is a student fund backed, in part, by the students, faculty, and staff of the College of Business and provides a unique opportunity to help individuals develop personally and professionally.

Each year, the PIF student team puts on a series of fall and spring events designed to raise awareness of the financial support offered by PIF and to raise funds that are annually matched by COB Alum, Mr. Ron Whitton.  Since its inception in the spring of 2018, the PIF fund has given out over $3,000 to COB students to help with their professional development needs.

This year, we have been able to make supporting PIF simple.  Participants in the fundraising drive can easily visit the PIF crowd-funding page (the ISU “Hatch” page) at:  https://hatch.illinoisstate.edu/PIF
