You may make donations using checks, cash or credit cards at any time. Checks or money orders should be made out to "Triton College Foundation" and mailed to the Foundation office along with a note stipulating how the donation is to be applied.

If your employer has a matching gift program, your donation to the Triton College Foundation could be doubled. Please check with your Human Resources department to see if this program is an option for you.
Donating Property or In-Kind Gifts
Many of our programs at Triton College have had the benefit of donated equipment, materials and books. If you have an item you would like to donate for College use, please contact the Foundation office at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3758. We will work with the appropriate College Dean or Administrator to find the right "home" for your gift.
If you have a more collectible item, such as artwork or other collections that you would like to donate, we will work with you to help establish the fair market value of the gift for your income tax purposes, if you don't already have an appraisal.
The Triton College Foundation will also accept gifts of donated securities (stock) - you are able to receive an income tax deduction based on the fair market value of the security once it is transferred to the Foundation. Please call the Foundation office for more information.
Other Naming Opportunities
The Triton College Foundation's Pathway to Success program provides a wide range of "naming" opportunities as a thoughtful way of remembering someone special. For as little as $125 you can purchase a brick with a customized message featuring your name, your favorite saying, or to memorialize a loved one. Larger paver stones are $275. Sponsored seating in either the Auditorium or Cernan Space Center is $150 per seat. Other items available for sponsorship include beautifully-landscaped trees, bushes and garden benches located throughout our campus that range from $1,000 to $2,500; offices and classrooms from $5,000 to $25,000; and, larger labs, lecture halls, streets and buildings from $50,000 and up.
