Many ways to support the building campaign

Construction of the new ECE building has been progressing rapidly. Photos of the February construction events are available in our photo gallery. In addition, the project continues to be available on our webcam.

Nevertheless, our fundraising for this project still continues. Details on these programs can be found at the Building Campaign for ECE ILLINOIS site.

Do your bit lapel pin.
The theme of our campaign remains “Do Your Bit.” Contributions at all levels are welcome. For all contributions over $100, donors will receive a special “I did my bit” lapel pin as a small token of our appreciation.

Many companies have matching programs. You can check the U of I Foundation’s database to see if your company has such a program.  This could be a great way to increase the amount of your donation.

Corporate and multi-year pledges for major gifts are also sought. If you are interested in one of these larger gifts or in a multi-year pledge, please contact Beth Katsinas, Director of Advancement, at or (217) 265-6285.
