I FUND Illini Referral Program

Referral Program Form

The I FUND is launching the Illini Referral Program in order to give members of the I FUND the opportunity to become recruiters themselves. Our goal is to increase the number of donors to the athletic department's annual fund. The average cost of scholarships is rising; Illini Nation can help to combat these costs by working together! Reach out to your Illinois classmates, friends, family and alumni and help them reconnect with Illinois Athletics today.

For every new I FUND member that is referred, the current member involved will receive priority points equal to the gift made by the new member. For example, if a new member that Joe Illini refers to the I FUND joins at the Captains Club level ($100), Joe Illini will have 100 priority points added to his account. This is a one-time point transfer which occurs when the referred member makes his/her gift to the I FUND. The referral points have perpetuity and will never be removed from your account.

There is no limit on the number of members that can be referred. At the end of each fiscal year, the members who have referred the most new members and raised the most money to the I FUND will each have the choice of a signed football from Coach Beckman or a signed basketball from Coach Groce.

In order to receive credit for your referrals and earn priority points, the new member MUST fill out an Illini Referral form crediting the referring I Fund member.

The Illini Referral form can be found here.
