Private and perpetual financial support ensures that the College of ACES will continue to fulfill the land-grant mission. The College of ACES goal for our current giving campaign is $200 million.


Gifts received during the With Illinois campaign will drive transformational learning opportunities, groundbreaking research, and public impact. With continued uncertainty in state funding, the college must shift to more reliable, diversified funding platforms to ensure progress and innovation.
