How to Give

Online

UIC’s secure online giving form saves you time, paperwork and postage and is secured with encryption. You will finalize your transaction and receive your receipt from the University of Illinois Foundation.

To change preferences for an existing recurring charge, such as payment amount, frequency or designated fund, contact UIC’s Associate Director for Stewardship, Malathi Tamilarasu, at mtamil1@uic.edu or 312-413-4100.

For security reasons we cannot accept credit card information via email or fax.

By Mail

Make your gift to UIC by check or money order payable to the University of Illinois Foundation. Include a note in the check’s memo specifying the gift’s designation.

University of Illinois Foundation
1305 West Green Street, MC-386
Urbana, IL 61801

For security reasons please do not mail cash.

Securities

Giving your stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other appreciated securities can provide immediate assistance to UIC while being part of a planned giving strategy. You can also receive tax benefits from this method of giving. These gifts require special planning and should involve consultation with your financial advisor.

To make a gift of publicly traded stocks or mutual funds via electronic transfer, please contact the Foundation Cash Receipts Department for delivery instructions at cashdesk@uif.uillinois.edu or (217) 244-0352.

The Foundation does not publish the delivery instructions in an effort to ensure proper identification of the donor transferring the gift.  Please verify the name of the securities and appropriate number of shares to be received and the designation of the gift prior to the transfer.

For mailing physical certificates, please send the certificate and stock power separately (for security purposes) to:
University of Illinois Foundation
Attn: Todd Warnes, Cash Desk
1305 West Green Street, MC-386
Urbana, IL 61801

Electronic Funds Transfer

EFT is a secure way to deliver your UIC gifts directly and automatically from your bank to the University of Illinois Foundation. As with online giving, EFT donations allow us to minimize administrative expenses.

When you make an EFT gift, your bank disburses the funds automatically according to your instructions, and until you decide to stop. You may extend your contribution into installments over the entire year.

To make your gifts via EFT, simply download, complete and return the EFT Authorization Form to the University of Illinois Foundation.

Either fax the authorization form to 217-333-5577 or mail it to:

Payroll Deduction

UIC employees can instruct the University to withhold a minimum contribution of $5 per month for a period of time (no less than three installments) or until you opt to discontinue the withholding.

To make your gifts via payroll deduction simply download, complete and return the payroll deduction authorization form to the University of Illinois Foundation via fax to 217-333-5577 or mail it to:
