University of Illinois Foundation

Each gift you make to benefit UIC is processed and administered by the University of Illinois Foundation.

The Foundation is the official fundraising and private gift-receiving agency for the University of Illinois and its three campuses. Foundation staff works closely with campus development staff members and campus and University leaders in support of the fundraising programs and opportunities that benefit the University.

The Foundation’s specific functions include receipting your gifts, managing the endowment, directing your funds to the sources you designate, designating unrestricted funds to provide the greatest impact and serving in legal capacities for planned giving arrangements. The Foundation provides expertise in areas such as taxation, investments, estate planning and financial management, especially as they relate to the benefits associated with charitable giving.
