Orange Krush, the student support group of the Fighting Illini basketball team, has earned national acclaim for its work as a charity foundation. Each fall, Orange Krush distributes the money it raised from the previous basketball season.

Since its inception in 1988, the Orange Krush Foundation has donated more than $2.5 million to charity.
