There are many ways in which you can support the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Alumni support is paramount to the University’s ability to continue to provide the same educational experience to current and future students.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a strong and renowned university and it needs a strong and robust annual fund to maintain and grow its reputation as a leading educational and research institution. Illinois has the largest number of living alumni of any school in the US, yet is ranked last in alumni participation and dollars raised in the Big Ten. While alumni participation does have an impact on national rankings, as it is a marker of alumni engagement, the need for your participation in the annual fund is greater – it demonstrates to the current students the alumni’s pride and commitment to their alma mater.

Your gifts ensure that our students have the same opportunities you had available as a student – top-notch faculty members in the classrooms and leading game-changing research in labs; quality cultural facilities to enrich student lives outside of the classroom; and a thriving University Library with a strong and internationally-recognized collection.
