Giving Day 2021


For 24 hours, around the world, the University of Chicago — and I-House — community comes together to share our pride and give back to UChicago. This year, on Giving Day, International House will showcase three funds that offer our alumni and friends the opportunity to support what matters most to them: Global Voices Performing Arts and Lecture Series, Fellowships and Internships, and our Graduate Commons Program. From noon to noon on April 21 and 22, our worldwide community will celebrate what makes UChicago unique as we support the people and programs that are building tomorrow. Get ready to make a difference!
