Gift Planning

Just as there are many ways your IGNITE support can enhance UIC, there are a variety of giving methods that will help you align your financial and philanthropic goals. We can work with you and your advisors to develop a giving plan that best fits your objectives.

Charitable giving decisions involve careful consideration of the assets to be transferred and the instruments used to make gifts. We invite you to review the information below to learn about the main considerations and benefits associated with the common types of planned gifts. (Please note that the University of Illinois Foundation and UIC encourages all donors to consult with their personal tax, financial, and/or legal advisers to discuss the implications associated with their decisions. The material on this page is intended to be used only for informational purposes and is not legal advice.)
