Established in 1935, the University of Illinois Foundation (UIF) is an independent nonprofit corporation responsible for raising and administering private gifts that advance the University of Illinois—a world-class public research university system, and its excellence in teaching, research, public service, and economic development across all three campuses.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) is a professional association serving educational institutions and the advancement professionals who work on their behalf in alumni relations, communications, development, marketing and allied areas. CASE helps its members build stronger relationships with their alumni and donors, raise funds for campus projects, produce recruitment materials, market their institutions to prospective students, diversify the profession, and foster public support of education.
The CASE Reuss Advancement Internship at the University of Illinois Foundation seeks to increase and diversify the number of professionals in educational advancement.
