Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

EFT is a secure way to deliver your gifts directly and automatically from your bank to the University of Illinois Foundation. 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:

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

Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is the most convenient way to give for University of Illinois employees.  This fast, simply hassle free method of giving allows you to make your pledge and have your contribution automatically deducted from your paycheck.  You no longer have to worry about making payments on time or having the fear of loss of benefits. Call the I FUND at 217.333.6595 to enroll today.  

Matching Gifts

Many members significantly increase the value of their donation (along with their benefits and privileges) by enrolling in their company's matching gift program (contact your employer for more details). Member benefits are based upon the total amount (the personal gift plus the company's match) the I FUND receives. Please note: If the total of your donation and the total amount matched by your employer does not equal the amount due to fulfill your pledge, you will be required to pay the difference in order to maintain the club benefits.
