Giving Levels

To honor the alumni, friends, corporations, foundations associations, and organizations that make outstanding contributions to the Southeastern Illinois College Foundation, the following giving levels have been established.  Participation is welcomed at each level of support and each participation level has its own benefits.  Giving Levels at SIC are calculated based on cumulative giving during the calendar year (January 1-December 31), regardless of the gifts’ designation.  Please contact the Advancement/Foundation office if you have any questions.

Legacy Society

The Legacy Society was established to recognize donors who have included a gift to Southeastern Illinois College in their will or estate plan.  Types of planned gifts include life income plans (such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities), life insurance gifts, designation of a remainder interest in a donor’s residence or real estate, or bequests made through a donor’s will.

Each donor is important and vital to the growth of Southeastern Illinois College, and every gift, no matter the amount, makes a difference and assists students to achieve their academic goals and contribute their skills and knowledge to our community.
