There are many ways to be involved in giving to the Department of Landscape Architecture at Illinois. Any size monetary gift, an offer of volunteer efforts, provision of professional guidance and office internships, advice and mentorship, or firm tours all increase the value of an Illinois education for our students. Financial support is key. Every year with donor support, we award scholarships, faculty awards, fellowships, programmatic and operational funds and professional lectureships to keep pushing our boundaries, redefining creativity in the classroom and in the field as well as expanding into the future of education. Your gifts can be useful in so many ways: giving yearly to an existing fund that supports travel or the classroom, creating an endowed fund that supports a scholarship, programming or our faculty in perpetuity, or, bringing the top practitioners and thought leaders to speak to our students and faculty, or participate in a charrette. You can create impact with your gifts. One of the most important things in maintaining excellence at the Department of Landscape Architecture at Illinois is the private support we receive from our alumni and friends. To attract and retain the best students, the best faculty, provide the best equipment and the best opportunities for learning and teaching, we must continue to ask for your generous support. It is pivotal for our shared successes now and in the future.
