KEEP CALM AND HELP STUDENTS VANDAL ON
A Moment of Giving. A Lifetime of Impact.

Thank you for making a tremendous impact during Vandal Giving Day! This year we prioritized scholarships and other funds to help students continue their education this fall or start their college journey at U of I. The Vandal Family stepped up with compassion and generosity to raise a record-breaking amount for students facing financial hardships.

 

Although Vandal Giving Day 2020 has ended, you can still make a difference for a U of I student by giving to the fund of your choice. Click here to make your gift.

 

Thank you, keep calm and Vandal on!
