The Illinois Club at the University of Illinois Celebrated 100 years

Decades of Giving Campaign

An opportunity to increase our Scholarship Endowment

Donors chose their favorite Decade to commemorate 100 years of The Illinois Club.

  • 1906 - $ 50
  • 1926 - $ 100
  • 1946 - $ 150
  • 1966 - $ 250
  • 1986 - $ 500
  • 2006 - $1000

We set a goal of raising $25,000 for our endowment fund and we succeeded by raising in excess of $26,000! All participants were acknowledged at various times in the newsletter and at events throughout our centennial year. Participants at the 2006 level were honored at a special reception at the President's House in December of 2006.

It's not too late for you to also consider donating to our Scholarship Fund. Please send Decades checks payable to UIF The Illinois Club (or ask about payroll deduction or stock transfer) with your contact information to :

Debbie Day, 2505 S. Lynn Street, Urbana, IL 61801
