Dear Campus Community,

I am pleased to announce that our campus community raised a total of $1,354,139 during the 2017 Campus Charitable Fund Drive (CCFD) with one in five employees participating. I hope you will join me in celebrating these achievements, not merely because of the high numbers, but because this amount will have an amazing impact in supporting more than 700 community charities.

Our employees are more than individuals who work at Illinois, they are valued members of this community. Each contribution makes a significant difference to the people supported by these charitable organizations.

If you gave during this drive, I want to thank you for your generosity. Whether you made a first time gift, donate every year, or continue to participate after retirement, you are so important in this effort. I also want to thank our campaign chair, Alma R. Sealine, and the CCFD planning committee for championing this effort.

CCFD is a wonderful way that we live up to our land-grant heritage. As we continue to prioritize the community where we live and work, I look forward to more opportunities for public engagement.


Robert J. Jones
