Support the Academy

There may never be a better time to step forward for American higher education and the vision of the Academy's mission than today. You may make a gift directly to the Academy Foundation or you can make a gift through the Academy's account at the University of Illinois Foundation.

Whether the gift is made directly or through the University of Illinois Foundation, the Donor is entitled to a charitable income tax deduction on the federal return. Gifts made directly to the ACLG Foundation support its operation and/or program activities. Gifts made to the account at the University of Illinois Foundation may only be used to support approved programs at the University.


Donor Membership Levels and Benefits


The Academy is a 509(a)(3) charitable organization under federal tax rules. By definition a 509(a)(3) names the charitable organization(s) to benefit from its philanthropic support, in this case the University of Illinois Foundation, and under the regulations the receiving entity ensures that its charitable mission is served by the supporting foundation.

Gifts to the ACLG Foundation receive the same federal tax treatment as applies to any fully qualifying charitable organization. Donors are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction subject to the applicable limits.
