Giving to ACI

Now, more than ever, your donations and gifts to ACI are needed! The demand for scholarships and other financial support for ACI-member college students never goes away, especially for low-and middle-income families working to recover from the pandemic, while also dealing with the increased costs of inflation.

Please give to ACI and its programs that support underserved students. Make your donation online, by check or money order, through matching gifts or other ways.

Checks and Money Orders

Please make your check or money order payable to Associated Colleges of Illinois and mail to:

Matching Gifts

You can increase the impact of your gift to ACI through participating in your company’s matching gift program. Many companies will match employee contributions dollar-for-dollar. Check with your Human Resources Department for your company’s matching gift policy.
