Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the kickoff of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 2017 Campus Charitable Fund Drive (CCFD), our workplace giving campaign, which will take place this year from September 18, 2017 to November 10, 2017.

The campaign is an opportunity for our Illinois faculty and staff to give to charities that support the communities where we work and live. In previous years, over 3,000 faculty and staff have pledged more than $1 million to more than 700 charities. Even in my brief time at Illinois, it has been amazing to see the generosity of the people who work at this great university.

In honor of the University of Illinois’s sesquicentennial celebration, our university-wide goal is to raise $1.5 million this year. Help us make this goal a reality by encouraging your fellow colleagues to participate. Every dollar impacts the services and resources available to our community and makes a difference.

Illinois faculty and staff members can safely and easily donate to the charities of their choosing through payroll deduction or personal check. Please explore the CCFD website to learn more about our campaign and the charities that are important to you.

I also want to thank the faculty and staff volunteers who help make CCFD possible. They play an invaluable role in making this positive impact on our community. If you have any questions during the campaign, please feel free to reach out to your college or department’s volunteer leaders.


Robert J. Jones
