How to Give

Join us in making a bold investment in Turner Hall. Your support will ensure that Illinois Department of Crop Sciences and NRES will have the competitive facilities needed to recruit and educate students for the next 50 years!

Keep it Simple—Make a Cash Gift

Cash gifts may be made via check, credit card, or wire transfer.

Checks should be made payable to the University of Illinois Foundation. Please also include a short note (or memo on your check) stating the purpose or designation of your gift. Mail to:

University of Illinois Foundation
1305 West Green Street, MC-386
Urbana, IL 61801

Credit card payments can be made securely online. When you are forwarded to the University of Illinois Foundation site to enter your credit card information, you can choose several options:

  • One time donation
  • Two or more payments
  • Recurring gift

Give Now

Please note that there is a 2.5% processing fee for gifts received via a credit card. However, your receipt will reflect the full value of your gift.

Wire transfers are accepted, but instructions must be provided at the time of the transfer to ensure accuracy and appropriate tracking.

Other Ways to Give

Giving to the Turner Hall Project is a great way to make a difference to the lives of students for generations to come. Learn more at "Many Ways to Give" on our main advancement page. If you would like to explore other options for how to support the project, we would be happy to talk with you.

Please contact Marise Robbins-Forbes (Director of Development) with any questions or to discuss options for making an impact with a major gift.

Grow your Giving with a Matching Gift

More than 7,500 employers will match employees’ contributions to the University of Illinois. Search for participating companies or contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your company matches gifts. Your company may match, double or even triple your initial gift.

You receive recognition for the entire gift, both your contribution and the company match. Eligible donors for a corporate matching gift may include retired employees, spouses of employees, or widows and widowers of former employees, depending on the corporation's giving policy. Just request and complete the matching gift form from your firm's human resources office.

Mail it to the University of Illinois Foundation and they'll do the rest. Questions? Call the University of Illinois Foundation at 217-333-0675.
