Let’s Connect! I’m a fundraising professional at Illinois and my goal is to help you have a meaningful impact on the lives of our students. Here are a few things I am here to do:

  • Answer any questions you may have about the programs you support;
  • Thank you for your generosity and give updates about the impact your giving is having on our students;
  • Discuss ways you can increase your support for the Illinois Promise or Illinois Commitment programs.

Thank you for your support and your dedication to helping our students succeed. Let’s work together to create even more opportunities for them to excel at Illinois and beyond!

Please sign up below for a meeting or  send me an email with your questions.

I look forward to hearing from you, or if you prefer, scroll down and make your gift online today.

Illinois Promise

Illinois Promise is more than just a scholarship. Established in 2005, I-Promise is a comprehensive program that supports students’ financial, academic, and social needs during their time at the university. I-Promise is awarded to students from the state of Illinois who are academically high-achieving but may not have been able to attend a university due to financial need (family income must be at or below the federal poverty level to qualify, among other criteria). The scholarship ensures that each recipient’s full cost of attendance is covered, including tuition, fees, room and board, and books and supplies. Through the support of more than 900 donors since its inception, the I-Promise program also provides student recipients with mentoring, professional development, individualized coaching, and social, academic, and service-oriented activities.

Illinois Commitment Scholarship Fund

The Illinois Commitment program ensures a world-class Illinois education is accessible to all students, regardless of their financial circumstances. This scholarship covers tuition and fees for qualified Illinois residents with family incomes below $67,100. Your support for Illinois Commitment makes a significant impact on the lives of students who may not have had the opportunity to pursue higher education otherwise. Join us in creating a brighter future for our students and community by supporting the Illinois Commitment program.  To learn more about the program and eligibility criteria, please visit
