Big Ten Network=Double Dollars for Flood Victims

[IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Big Ten Network has extended the deadline for matching contributions to July 30, 2008.]

Alumni, friends, and fans eager to help the UI recover from the devastating flood of 2008 now have an added incentive to do so. Between now and June 30, the Big Ten Network will match all gifts to the UI Flood Relief Fund that are made via this special link:

If you make a credit card gift of $50, for example, the Big Ten Network will match that amount and $100 will go to help with campus flood relief effort,  but only until the UI reaches the cumulative gift total of $25,000. The fund still has a long way to go before the $25,000 cap is reached, but June 30 is almost here. Your gift will make a double difference to the UI, so give today!
