Making a gift to Illinois online is easy and secure. You can make your gift at any time, day or night, by visiting our secure form.
Make checks payable to the University of Illinois Foundation. We encourage you to print the gift form, specify amounts and the areas you wish to support, and include it along with your gift. Mail gifts to: University of Illinois Foundation, P.O. Box 3429, Champaign, IL 61826-3429
Each year more than 100 student callers reach out to thousands of alumni and friends to ask them to pledge their support to the people and programs of Illinois. This experience gives our students the chance to develop skills in public relations, marketing, and customer service. Our student callers can update you on University life and current issues, as well as important priorities for the University.
Some direct mail and telemarketing reminders give you the option of using a personal web code to make your gift. They make giving even easier. If you have received a personal web code on a gift form in one of our mailings please visit give.illinois.edu/yourgift/ to make your gift. If you have received a personal web code in an email or on a gift form in a mailing from telemarketing please visit give.illinois.edu/yourpledge/ to fulfill your pledge.
In most circumstances, donors with income taxable in the United States may deduct their gifts to the University of Illinois from that income. We recommend that you check with a local tax professional for details specific to your country, or please contact us for more specific information about giving options from overseas.
Through electronic funds transfer, Illinois offers you the opportunity to make a recurring or one-time gift without writing a check. Download an EFT authorization form or call (217) 244-1206 to request an EFT Authorization Form.
Payroll deduction is a convenient way to support Illinois if you work at the University of Illinois. Download a payroll deduction form or call (217) 244-1206 to request a payroll deduction form. Please note that it may take more than one pay period before your payroll deduction goes into effect.
When you make a gift online using your credit card, you have the option of dividing your gift into two or more payments or giving a fixed amount over a specified period of time. Charge date options are the 1st and 15th of each month.
If you can't find the fund you want to give to, please try to search for a fund. If that still doesn't return the results you are looking for, you can manually write in the fund name and we will follow-up with you if we have any questions.
