WE ARE PHIL Faculty/Staff Giving Week: October 16-20, 2017

We Are Phil powered by GOLDrush

We Are Phil powered by GOLDrush is a new opportunity for faculty and staff to make a gift to a specific cause within their department or unit during the 2017 faculty/staff giving week (October 16-20, 2017). If your department or unit is interested in running a “micro” crowdfunding campaign on the We Are Phil powered by GOLDrush site, please submit an application by Friday, August 18.

Who is Phil?

Phil is short for philanthropy, and at the UI, Phil is our nickname for everyone who donates to the university, as well as all those who benefit from private support. That means you are Phil too.

Your participation is important. Each person who gives counts equally as one person who supports the UI’s mission.

…even if you can only give a little. Imagine what we can accomplish at the UI if everyone gives what they can!

You can support any of the UI programs and projects that matter most to you—and your gift will make a real difference on campus.




We Are Phil

We Are Phil week is happening on the UI campus October 16-October 20, 2017--our fifth annual celebration of faculty/staff philanthropy on the UI campus! It’s always a good time to “Be Phil,” though… make a gift any time between now and June 30, 2018, to be a part of this initiative. Thank you!
