Gifts In Action

The old saying holds true – you get what you pay for. Every dollar you give is an investment that will help find solutions to the world’s most critical challenges in order to create abundant food and energy, a healthy environment, and successful families and communities. The College of ACES takes pride in making sure that we utilize your hard-earned dollars exactly as you intend. We take every dollar received through private support seriously, and we are happy to show you how your gifts transform lives and make an impact.

Rachel Kelley

Giving back took on a new meaning when Rachel Kelley began volunteering full time after having a “change of heart” through the Make A Wish Foundation. Kelley is from Highland Park and started giving back to the College of ACES in 2006.

Cmarik Family

It’s safe to say that no one celebrates 90th birthdays quite like the Cmarik family.

To honor George Cmarik, former University of Illinois assistant professor in animal sciences, his daughter organized a student internship gift to commemorate his special day.

Farm Credit Services

Farm Credit Services of Illinois and 1st Farm Credit Services each gave $1 million endowments to support agricultural programs that educate young people, train future agricultural leaders, and support higher education in agriculture.

Graduate teaching assistantship develops leaders

With the help of graduate student teaching assistant Candice Mazewski, food science students in the College of ACES have been refining their research and development skills in their capstone course, Product Development.

Gary Martin

For Gary Martin and his wife of over 35 years, Pamela, the decision to give back to the College of ACES and the Animal Science program was a simple one.

Illinois Soybean Association

Holding the title of Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) Scholar means quite a bit to five ACES students.
