ways to give

Gifts of Cash: Gifts of cash may be made online with a credit card, by mail, through automatic deductions from your bank account, and more. Gifts by check should be made payable to UIF/FAA. Mail your gift along with an accompanying note stating that your gift is for the College of Fine and Applied Arts to:

University of Illinois Foundation
P.O. Box 734500
Chicago, IL 60673-4500

Gifts of Stock and Securities: Gifts of this nature provide significant tax advantages.

Matching Gifts: Matching gifts have the ability to double—or even triple—the impact of your gift.

Planned Gifts: Planned gifts allow you to support the College of Fine and Applied Arts through a bequest, charitable trust, or other deferred giving vehicle.

Gifts of Property: Property such as real estate, art, or collectibles can provide excellent tax benefits.

Endowments: An endowment is a self-renewing resource that the university holds in perpetuity and does not spend. Instead, endowed gifts are invested, and the earnings from these investments help fund scholarships, fellowships, and other needs of FAA.

Creating an endowed fund gives you an opportunity to put your name or the name of another person or organization on the endowment in memory or tribute. The minimum investment required to create an endowment within FAA is $25,000 and may be established with an outright or planned gift.

For more information about making a gift to the college, please email faa-advancement@illinois.edu or call 217.333.0963.
