Like hearty perennials that bloom every year, Legacy Partners make gifts that continue to bless families and children for years to come.

When you include Illini Christian Ministries in your will or trust, you support a strong future for our local Better Together Program and our adoption services. Your gifts can have eternal value through programs that literally change lives everyday.

Whether you would like your gift to make an impact today or go into effect after your lifetime, there are charitable plans that let you provide for your family and also support the work of ICM. We always recommend you seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor. Should you have any questions regarding planned giving, please contact our office at (217) 355-4446 or

The simplest and most common planned gift is a bequest.

You can make a lasting gift to ICM with as little as a one sentence statement in your will or trust. All you need is the following info:

Legal Name: Illini Christian Ministries, Inc.

Federal Tax Id Number: 37-0898472

Address: 3 Henson Place, Suite 1 | Champaign, IL 61820

ICM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has sustained a Christ-centered ministry to families and children for over 50 years. We do not use government grant funding that augments our programs. Should you have any questions about becoming a Legacy Partner through a bequest or other form of planned giving, please contact our office at (217) 355-4446 or

If you arrange a bequest to ICM, please let us know by emailing our office. We would like the opportunity to thank you, acknowledge you in our annual report, and be wise stewards of your planned gift. We will, of course, honor any requests to give anonymously and would like to send occasional communication pieces designed for Legacy Partners.

We’re committed to building a strong future for our ministry to families and children. We know that stock gifts or other forms of asset transfer can have an enormous impact on our mission and we thank you for considering such a gift.

We always advise consulting with a financial or legal advisor. However, you can have peace of mind knowing that ICM is a 501(c)(3) in good standing and our assets are professionally managed by an independent advisor. You can find the ICM Gift Acceptance Policy here.

Illini Christian Ministries has had the privilege of serving Illinois families and children for over 50 years, but this long history of ministry would not have been possible without the committed support of our incredible Legacy Partners.

ICM Legacy Partners are those who have given to ICM for at least 10 consecutive years, or who have made a bequest or other planned gift to ICM. We are amazed to be able to say that many of these individuals have given consistently to ICM for over 25 years! Their legacy of generosity and compassion has helped ICM through many highs and lows.

As a small gesture of gratitude, the ICM team and board extends our deepest thanks to each Legacy Partner who has helped sustain this ministry. You model a commitment to families and children that inspires us.
