Annual Fund

Make an immediate impact with direct support through the IC Fund.

  • More than 4,000 students have felt the immediate impact of the $7.8 million raised for the IC Fund since the launch of
    Inspiring Achievement.

  • This year, more than 1,000 donors came together for the College’s annual day of giving, ALL IN FOR IC, to support students through the IC Fund.

  • Gifts to the IC Fund have strengthened academic innovation and supported the development of new programs like agribusiness and nursing.

  • Over 80 clubs, organizations and teams teach leadership skills and build community.

  • Over 600 philanthropic leaders have membership to the Illinois College Society, including 130 Lifetime Members.

  • IC would have to grow the endowment by $20 million to have the same level of impact on our budget as raising $1,000 per student annually for the IC Fund.

When President Farley asked me to chair the Inspiring Achievement Campaign, I accepted enthusiastically as I have a strong belief in Illinois College and its history. I saw the Campaign as a vehicle to strengthen its position for the future, as well as to help IC build programs that fit the needs of current and future students. As Campaign chair, I would like to say ‘thank you’ to you, for supporting Illinois College.”
