Honor Roll of Donors 2009

With Continuing GratitudeUIC students

The College of Engineering extends its gratitude to each of the alumni, friends, associations, corporations and foundations that support the College.

Each has a stake in the future of the College of Engineering and acts on it through their volunteer activity, donations to the Engineering Annual Fund, endowed and planned gifts to perpetuate programs or educational assistance, grants and contracts that underwrite faculty research, and provision of materials to reinvigorate laboratories and classrooms.

For 41 years, the UIC College of Engineering has awarded degrees and provided a unique, dynamic location where access to excellence in engineering is highly prized. We promise to continue our concern for our students and the academic environment.

We recognize and honor these individual, corporate and foundation partners for their gifts of $100 or more to the Engineering Annual Fund, our endowments and research enterprises.

To Our Donors and Friends:

Through matching gift programs, our corporate partners and their foundations have the power to increase the impact of your gift. We gratefully recognize donors for their combined giving – their own gifts and those received through matching gift programs.  Learn about your company’s matching program at The University of Illinois Foundation/.

We also recognize donors who have made gifts as the principal owner of a company as individuals while listing their companies as Donor Directed Giving.

The College of Engineering has made every effort to include each gift received by the University of Illinois Foundation by June 30, 2009.  The 2010 Honor Roll of Donors will recognize gifts or matching gifts received after that date. 

If you wish to have the name of your spouse added to future recognition listings or your name listed in a different fashion, please inform us of your preference at enginews@uic.edu.
