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

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
