The University’s Most Flexible Annual Giving Fund

The UIS Fund provides unrestricted support to UIS, making it one of the most important gift funds at UIS. You can give safely online to this valuable fund by using the Donate button above.
Each year, we encourage donors to add their support to the Fund through:

  • fundraising letters,
  • emails,
  • phone appeals,
  • web appeals, and
  • other means.

If you are a donor who responds generously to these annual appeals, you are providing crucial support for UIS, and we thank you.
Through annual appeals, we ask donors to give most often to the UIS Fund, but you always have the option of giving to any fund of your choice, including department funds, student organizations, the general UIS Scholarship Fund, or many other funds.
You can choose a fund you want to support through your annual gifts.


If you have any questions, please call Lisa Whelpley, our Associate Vice Chancellor for Development, at (217) 206-6058, or email her at whelpley.lisa@uis.edu.
