Gift Planning

Gift Planning

An immediate use major gift or a planned gift make NPR Illinois a resource for the community into the future.

Gift planning help is available from our Director of Development, Kate McKenzie, who works with you on the purpose of your gift. Gift planning sometimes also requires a fund agreement, prepared by the University of Illinois Foundation. The planning helps match your intent with NPR Illinois projects.

Your gift might have very limited criteria for its use, but you can also give an unrestricted gift, which means NPR Illinois may use the gift where it is most needed. These gifts, of course, are always welcome because needs change and opportunities arise unexpectedly. Unrestricted gifts make it possible to respond to each.

If you are interested in planning a gift, Kate McKenzie will be happy to meet with you (kate.mckenzie@uis.edu, 217-206-6094).

Gift planning includes the Journalism-Corps (funding journalists to cover state and local news in the areas of government, politics, health, harvest, education, equity, justice, business, economy, arts, life, Lincoln, and history), student work scholarships, community engagement events, and so forth. The linked list below includes some the gifts that can require planning.

Thank you for considering this important legacy and investment in informing our community.
