Campus Charitable Fund Drive Launch
September 20, 2021 10:04 AM

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign 2021 Campus Charitable Fund Drive (CCFD), our annual workplace giving campaign, which will take place from Sept. 22 through Nov. 17.

As we continue to navigate the impacts of COVID-19, this campaign is an opportunity to support our communities at home and around the world. For eight weeks, university employees can safely and easily support the charities of their choice to make a positive impact on the lives of many. I encourage you to explore the CCFD website to learn more about our campaign and the causes that are important to you. Giving can be a one-time gift or an ongoing payroll deduction.

Since the start of the pandemic, this entire university has shown the world what happens when the Illinois family comes together. Last year, after transitioning to a virtual space, we were able to raise over $1.3 million to help others in our local community and beyond. This year, our goal is to raise $1.5 million to benefit those in need.

I especially want to thank our Illinois faculty members and staff volunteers who serve as unit leaders to help make CCFD possible. They play an invaluable role in coordinating the efforts of the campaign. If you have any questions about CCFD, I encourage you to reach out to your college or department unit leader.

I am grateful for your thoughtful consideration during this campaign. Together, we can make a tremendous difference in the lives of others.


Robert J. Jones
