Thank you for Supporting Illinois Bicentennial

To create and implement a meaningful celebration, Illinois Bicentennial must rely on sponsorships and donations, which may be tax-deductible. With your support, we can commemorate important accomplishments in history, support impactful programs and events, and inspire Illinoisans to be #IllinoisProud.


Illinois Bicentennial Sponsors are important partners in our mission of celebrating all that is great in our state. Engagement and sponsorship opportunities can highlight your company’s brand, product, or service throughout our yearlong celebration. Indeed, the impact of your company’s commitment, participation, and sponsorship dollars has the potential for local, regional, and/or statewide positive effect.

Contact us at illinois200@illinois.gov to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.


Illinois Bicentennial Donors help fund urgent and important priorities that will allow us to move from ideas to action. From basic needs like graphic design and video production to more significant expenses like booking top talent for our signature events, your support will seed the essential elements of our entire celebration.
