The Foundation does not publish the delivery instructions in an effort to insure proper identification of the donor transferring the gift; verify the name of the securities and appropriate number of shares to be received; and the designation of the gift prior to the transfer.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

EFT is a secure way to deliver your gifts directly and automatically from your bank to the University of Illinois Foundation. As with online giving, EFT donations allow us to minimize administrative expenses.

When you make an EFT gift, your bank disburses the funds automatically according to your instructions, and until you decide to stop. You may extend your contribution into installments over the entire year.

Either fax the Authorization Form to (217) 333-5577 or mail it to:

Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is an easy way for University employees to make gifts directly and automatically from a paycheck. As with online giving and EFT, payroll deduction donations allow us to minimize administrative expenses.

When you make a payroll deduction gift, you may instruct the University to withhold a minimum contribution of $5 per month for a period of time (no less than 3 installments) or until you instruct us to discontinue the withholding.

To make your gifts via payroll deduction, simply download, complete and return the Payroll Deduction Authorization Card to the University of Illinois Foundation.
