President’s Council

As the premier donor recognition program of the University of Illinois, the President’s Council recognizes individuals who make significant philanthropic investments in the University totaling $50,000 or more.

Since 1964, over 16,000 members have joined the Council based on cumulative lifetime gifts and commitments (outright, pledged, and deferred) across all three universities in Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield.
