Public and private support are crucial to sustaining Illinois's standing as a preeminent public research university. Private industry plays a vital role in fostering an environment of brilliant scholarship and creative discovery by supporting the University through student scholarships, sponsored research, and facilities support.

The Office of Corporate Relations has mechanisms for coordinating philanthropic proposals and can work with you to organize all your philanthropic giving on campus. As Benjamin Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." And at Illinois, you enjoy a high return on your investment with the knowledge that your gift supports a robust learning environment that educates future leaders in business, science and technology, and the arts.
