Alumni and friends invest in our School annually by making gifts to benefit students, faculty, and programs, but what is the return on your investment?
Ask students who benefit from financial assistance for tuition, books, career development, travel, awards, and alumni engagement opportunities. Donor support assists students in need of financial assistance and maintains the excellence of our top-ranked programs (both on campus and online). Thanks to your help, our graduates become leaders in the field who benefit their communities, the nation, and the world.
There are a number of ways to give to the School of Information Sciences. These include short-term and long-term options. We are happy to work with you to determine which option best fits your needs.
Current gifts are those that are given outright and can be used immediately by the School. These gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, subject to the limitations placed on charitable gifts by the Internal Revenue Service.
Credit-card based, online gift processing saves times, reduces paperwork and eliminates postage. It's a safe and cost-effective way for you to give. Give now
Electronic Funds Transfer
Electronic Funds Transfer is a quick and convenient way to give directly from your bank. Simply fill out the EFT Authorization Form. It allows you to designate the amount of money you want, either in one sum or over time in installments.
In many cases, companies will double or triple your generous gift. Find out if your company will match your gift by checking our Matching Gift Corporate List. Eligible donors for a corporate matching gift may include retired employees, spouses of employees, or widows and widowers of former employees depending on the corporation's giving policy.
Give by Mail
If you prefer to give by mail, please send a check or money order, made payable to the University of Illinois Foundation. On the memo line of your check, designate the specific fund you would like to receive your gift. Please note the iSchool Annual Fund is an option. If you choose to mail your gift, the date of the gift is the postmark date. Send your donation to:
