How It Works

  1. You transfer cash to the U of I Foundation—via a check through the mail or online by debit or credit card
  2. The U of I Foundation can put your gift to immediate use or add it to an endowed fund if you so specify
  3. You receive a charitable deduction


  • Your gift is made simply and quickly
  • You receive a federal income-tax deduction
  • You provide immediate support for the U of I Foundation
