Dear Colleagues:

We're in the final days of the 2013 Campus Charitable Fund Drive. While the officially-designated donation period has ended, we will continue to accept contributions through Wednesday, November 27. You still have time to make a difference with your donation.

To contribute go to, click on the "Donate Here" button and follow the easy steps. It is simple and quick to make a gift that will have an impact all year long.

For everyone who has given this year, I want to thank you for your generosity. I'm always amazed at what can happen when the Illinois family bands together for a cause.

This year's drive has been immensely successful but we are still short of our ambitious $1.4 million dollar goal. I hope you will consider adding your name to the long list of our 2013 donors and help us reach that target in these final days.

And I hope we all remember that this project is really all about the positive impact we can have here in our own community. More than merely meeting goals and figures, we have a real opportunity to change both the lives of our neighbors and our own.

Your donation might help a victim of domestic abuse escape to a safe home, or to feed a hungry child or awaken the love of reading in a struggling student. And that's the most exciting thing about the Campus Charitable Fund Drive – you never know just how your gift might touch a life.

Time and again I have witnessed how a small act of generosity by one person can effect a big change in the lives of many. What we do really matters and your gift makes a difference.

With gratitude,

Phyllis M. Wise
