Monthly Giving

A convenient option for supporting the College of Law is through automatic monthly* credit card payments. The ongoing support provided by sustaining gifts allows the College to do more with your donation.

The Benefits

  • Uninterrupted donor status – Make a gift now, and don’t worry about remembering next year. (Sustaining gifts can be set up at any time when you make a gift online.)
  • Easy budgeting – Regardless of the size of your annual gift, a sustaining gift allow you to spread your gift over the course of the year. This is a great option for those who like to budget their monthly expenses.
  • No more regular solicitations – Once you set up your sustaining gift, you are considered a donor from now until you end your regular donations, and therefore will not receive regular solicitation communications (email, letters, telemarketing calls) from the College of Law.
  • Annual donor statement – In January of each year, you will receive an annual statement of the sum of your donation for the year. This will serve as your official tax record for your giving to the College of Law, and can also be used to process a single annual request for a matching gift from your employer.

*Sustaining gifts can also be set for monthly, quarterly, or annual payments

**Supporters who give $1,000 or more annually are recognized by membership in the John Cribbet Leadership Giving Society (Gifts made prior an alum’s 10th reunion qualify at $500; prior to the 5th reunion qualify at $250.)

***In addition to recognition as a College of Law Cribbet Society member, supporters who give $2,500 or more annually are recognized by membership in the University of Illinois Chancellor’s Circle.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that supplement their employees’ charitable donations. Your company may match, double, triple, or even quadruple your initial gift. See if your employer will match your gift.
