In December 2020, the College of ACES celebrated surpassing its $200 million With Illinois campaign goal 18 months ahead of schedule. Now, the college—and the university—have set their sights on recognizing the impact of the generosity of its supporters.

Launched in summer 2017, With Illinois was the most ambitious, and is now the most successful, philanthropic endeavor in University of Illinois history. So successful, in fact, that the university exceeded its goal by raising $2.7 billion throughout the campaign.

“Gifts received during the With Illinois campaign are helping the College of ACES build on past successes, overcome barriers, and reach for new horizons,” says Kimberly Meenen, ACES assistant dean for advancement.

Celebrate and learn more about the impact of gifts given to ACES during the WITH Illinois campaign at a campaign impact website.

Some ACES highlights from the campaign include:

  • $251,603,134 raised
  • 11,253 first-time donors
  • 309 new funds supporting scholarships, fellowships, and faculty positions
