Your gift to the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships will help create a permanent means of filling the gap between a family’s unmet financial need and the cost of an excellent education.
Through your support of this scholarship fund, you will be part of creating a new Gift for the Ages.
“The right to rise” was a philosophy embraced by Abraham Lincoln. At its core is the belief that talent resides at all income levels. It is this legacy we honor through the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships.
Giving for Scholarships
Why I Gave
“It was Professor Yankwich’s intervention that allowed me to continue the education at Illinois. I am forever grateful to him for his standing up for me. I do not have a lot of money and cannot donate much. But I owe this to him and U of I.”
—John Hsu, MS ’68, PhD ’70, chemistry
Gift for the Ages Recognition
To express our gratitude for all contributions, every donor to the Lincoln Hall Fund for Scholarships will be recognized on the Gift for the Ages banner, which is displayed off the east corridor, just outside the entrance to the cafe and the north courtyard.
Many companies will match or even double or triple your gift to the college. Simply request and complete the Matching Gift Form from your company’s Human Resources Office, then mail it along with your gift check. See if your company has a matching gift program.
