"I had the good fortune to receive a scholarship to attend Illinois, which really was a game changer for me. By giving back, we can provide today’s students with that same kind of transformational experience."

"Giving back—no matter how little it is—is the least you can do. The amount of a donation may not mean a lot, but it’s a way of conveying how appreciative I am of what Illinois has done for me."
