Come visit us on the Quad this week (October 14-17, 2013) to learn more about the privately funded gifts on campus, the 1867 Society Fund, and contribute your thoughts in our "I Love Illinois Because..." campaign!
During the week, you will see orange signs that look like gift tags at significant landmarks around the Quad. The signs identify locations that were created or renovated through the generosity of donors. Visit our Facebook page to learn more about these landmarks and the donors.
The 1867 Society Council is comprised of student leaders who work to increase giving to Illinois. You may not know it, but tuition and state funding do not pay for everything that you enjoy on campus. Generous gifts from alumni, faculty, friends, staff and students add to your experience by providing scholarship assistance, study abroad trips, research opportunities, and so much more.
It takes all of us working together to make an impact. If you love Illinois and want to join us as we raise awareness about the importance of private gifts, please contact the V.P. of External Recruitment, Janet Lee, by email at email@example.com.
Thank you to all of the donors of 1867 Society Fund for making this possible! It is because of your donations and your vote that the Illini Service Dogs (ISD) Student Organization received a check for $1,600!
ISD provides University of Illinois students with an opportunity to foster and train a service dog for a person with a disability. ISD will use money from the 1867 Society Fund to train a dog, a process that takes approximately two years. As a completely donation-driven organization, ISD relies on private support to provide care which includes food, toys, veterinary care, and more.
The 1867 Society Fund is a gift fund that is used to support a campus-based project. When you give to the 1867 Society Fund, your donation will be combined with others to make a powerful impact on campus.
You LOVE Illinois. It was clear from the response to "I Love Illinois" Week that students LOVE the campus. We hope that your feelings for Illinois will continue to grow and you will consider taking the next step...making a gift. You can support an area of campus that you LOVE or a campus project through the 1867 Society Fund.
Our goal is to increase student giving to Illinois. We want students to understand that tuition doesn't pay for everything that they enjoy on campus. The generous gifts from alumni and friends add to our experience. It takes all of us working together to make an impact. We encourage students to give to Illinois out of appreciation for those gifts and passion for their Alma Mater.
