Ways to Give

Outright Gifts

The ICC Excellence Fund provides flexibility to respond quickly to emerging needs for students and faculty.

Stocks & Securities

Gifts of stock are a great option to transfer ownership of a security to the ICC Educational Foundation and avoid capital gains taxes.

Planned Giving

You may choose to name the Foundation in your will, or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or insurance policy.

Matching Gifts

Many companies have established matching gift programs, which match their employees’ gifts to educational institutions such as Illinois Central College.

Thanks to our generous donors, we will be able to award more scholarships than ever before as well as provide a record level of support for other College initiatives.

One of the greatest increases is reflected in Academic Expansion Projects. The Foundation has had success in it’s Major Gifts Campaigns over the past five years supporting the expansion of the Agricultural and Industrial Technologies Building, the new Technology Center and Career Services Center, and the creation of the Health Careers Institute and the Culinary Arts Institute.

With every project the Foundation undertakes, the ultimate beneficiaries of your support are ICC students. Thank you for helping us provide affordable, high-quality education to Central Illinois.

The ICC Educational Foundation is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation which is a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
