With Illinois was the university’s most ambitious fundraising campaign to date. The College of Fine and Applied Arts is incredibly grateful for the contributions of our passionate supporters. The With Illinois campaign generated significant increases in giving across the college that will provide support to our faculty, staff, and students. Several new scholarships were also established with these funds. Each gift is as unique as our supporters. We encourage you to learn more about just some of our donors and their stories of impact.
Thanks to FAA’s generous alumni and friends, we raised more than $87 million over the course of this campaign, surpassing our $65 million goal back in September of 2020. The Office of Advancement finished this past fiscal year with its best fundraising year in the history of the college, raising over $20 million. The College of Fine and Applied Arts extends our sincere gratitude to everyone across the college and our arts community for their generosity, support, collaboration, and partnership.
