Giving in the Community



The IPC welcomes corporations, foundations, and organizations to demonstrate their commitment to improving the health and welfare of the communities where they operate. By providing vital financial support to the special initiatives and operating programs of the Illinois Poison Center,we can continue to serve the residents of Illinois.





In today’s economy, Americans believe it is more important than ever for companies to be socially responsible (Cone/Duke University Behavioral Study, 2008). Partnering with local corporations and organizations generates new opportunities for the IPC to actively engage in programs that are mutually beneficial. The investment for all that has a direct impact on the health and well-being of everyone.



We strive to provide each of our donors and sponsors a unique way to support our cause that reflects their interest and focus for community programming.

Matching Gifts at Work


Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. These programs are a great way for companies to support our cause and a chance for you to double or even triple your gift! Please check with your company's Human Resources department to see if your company offers a matching gift program. Most companies have matching gift forms available through their personnel office that you fill out and mail to us. We do the rest!  


Please mail matching gift forms to:

Company Grants for Volunteer Time



Some companies will give grants to organizations where their employees volunteer. Ask your Human Resources department or Community Relations department if this is available at your company and how you can go about taking advantage of this great way to help us even more.





Workplace Giving


Check with your payroll administrator to see if the IPC is on your company's list of approved charities in your workplace contribution campaign. If we are not listed, ask if you can write us in or have us added to the list. We are able to accept donations through United Way programs in Illinois communities. 




Independent Charities of America (ICA) operates GiveDirect, an online giving program that companies can use free of charge to manage either a year-round or an annual fund drive program. 100% of an employee's pledge is passed on to their charity of choice.




ICA can customize each company's giving site to mirror the look and feel of the company's own website or intranet site. Companies can include some or all of ICA's charity members, and they can add as many other charities to the list as they like. There is also a back-end reporting website for company administrators and payroll personnel to generate reports and track pledges.




Planned Giving  

Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve the sustainability of the IPC. The continued operation of the IPC depends upon your goodwill. To that end, there are a number of easy giving options from which you can choose - from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement. For further details, please contact us at ipcadmin@team-iha.org  or 312-906-6136.
