Public Interest Champions Circle

The Public Interest Champions Circle honors a special group of our donors who are protecting the public interest for future generations by remembering Illinois PIRG or our sister organization, Illinois PIRG Education Fund, in their estate plans.  These legacy donors are helping to ensure that these organizations will continue to flourish – offering an independent voice that works on behalf of the public interest – for years to come.

If you’ve already included Illinois PIRG or Illinois PIRG Education Fund in your estate plans or are planning to do so, email our Planned Giving Coordinator using the form below, or call 1-800-841-7299 to find out how to enroll in the Public Interest Champions Circle.  


Contributions to Illinois PIRG are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions. However, gifts to Illinois PIRG Education Fund are tax-deductible in many circumstances. Please seek the guidance of your attorney or financial advisor when making changes to your estate plan.
