More Friends

Over the years individual donations to Josh’s Fund have been made directly, at times to honor a friend or family member on a special occasion or to honor the memory of a loved one. Some donations have been given via past events—performances and other fundraisers sponsored by individuals or organizations.. Donations to fundraisers typically are aggregated and presented to Josh’s Fund in a single check. Many of these donors are not named and thus not listed here but Josh’s Fund is deeply grateful to all of these individuals. What follow are the all known donors who are not included in one of the previous categories. Please let us know if we are missing your name.

Football Tailgaters

Annually between 1994 and 2009 at football tailgates before every University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign literally thousands of fans generously dropped their coins and bills into manila envelopes, trusting the student volunteer canvassers (but how could you have resisted their selflessness?) and supporting the cause of fighting cancer to which Josh’s Fund is devoted.
Some fans would tell the volunteers that they had been students in Professor Gottheil’s economics classes and some reported that they had been volunteers in previous years, when they were students. Often fans who were regular tailgaters donated every year when approached by the volunteers, and often donors were fans of the visiting teams who were as generous as the Illini fans. They are among the many anonymous donors whose support helped lay the foundation for Josh’s Fund!


Corporate Sponsors

Organizations or businesses, primarily in the Champaign-Urbana community but also located elsewhere have donated to Josh’s Fund. Many responded to requests for contributions from university students and other friends of Josh’s Fund that have organized fund-raisers on campus or in the community.
