Giving Opportunities

Illinois International strengthens Illinois' role as a global leader in learning, discovery, and engagement. Give global and support student experiences, both on campus and abroad.

We offer several different options for giving, including supporting our core services and activities, making it possible for students to study abroad, and providing emergency funds to international students in need. You may also choose to donate to an existing memorial fund set up in honor of a loved one or establish your own fund. Please see the full list of options below. If you have questions about setting up a fund, contact Illinois International Stewardship Support.
