  • Cash. The easiest way to donate; contributions can be sent via check to Chicago State Foundation's office, or you can make a credit card donation online.

  • Securities. The Chicago State Foundation accepts appreciated securities, which may offer a larger tax benefit than a cash gift.

  • Payroll Deduction. Employees of the University can make their contributions through automatic deductions from their paychecks.

  • Employer Matching Program. Many companies match their employees' charitable donations. Learn how you could double or even triple your endowment.
