2016 Grant Award Winners

The Dads Association at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and social purposes, specifically to provide support to its members and to students at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. The Dads Association is a separately incorporated, nonprofit association. The Dads Association has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to students and the Urbana-Champaign community since its founding in 1922.
