Dean Paul Brandt-RaufThe 2016 SPHGives Annual Giving Campaign marks the school's 4th Annual Giving Campaign.  I am pleased to say that this campaign was the first of its kind on the UIC campus and it energizes me to know that so many of our faculty, staff and students participate each year to make this a success!  

The UIC School of Public Health is able to continue its mission, and provide the world class education that students come here to receive, because of its generous supporters. Not only do we solve the world’s current public health crises – implementing our research and interventions in the communities in which we live, work, and play – but we also cultivate the future leaders of public health in the process. We, truly, are an exceptional school and a very special institution. The culture of “leadership through service” I find at the UIC School of Public Health is what encourages me to give back, and inspires so many of our alumni and friends do the same.  But when a devoted faculty or staff member makes a personal contribution to the school, it is special because so much of your time and effort already goes to making our school exceptional. And when a current student chooses to donate to their school, it speaks volumes about how much they believe in the work that all of us are doing. Whether you give annually, contribute to an endowment, or have included the school in your estate plan, all gifts truly make a difference!

WAYS TO GIVE

Employees and students have three options when making a donation:

  1. Stop by the SPHGives tables in the lobby of 1603 W. Taylor.  We'll have a donation form for you to complete.  Gifts of cash, check or credit card are accepted.
  2. Make a secure gift online by visiting publichealth.uic.edu/support-sph
  3. Contact any member of the Office of Advancement.  We will have donation forms and can answer any questions you might have.


THE INCENTIVES

Once a unit reaches 75% participation level, an amount of $1,000.00 will be deposited into that unit’s account to be spent how that unit sees fit. The unit with the highest giving percentage at the end of the competition will receive an additional $1,500.00, the Golden Brick, and bragging rights around the school for an entire year! 

CHOOSE WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

Your gift can benefit any of the divisions, funds, or programs and still count towards your unit’s participation rate! By choosing where your gift goes, you help determine what programs or projects you would like to see enhanced. Check out a list of our funds here.
