Have you heard–Empower Illinois and the Tax Credit Scholarship Program had its most successful year to date. In 2021, we awarded nearly 6,200 scholarships and raised more than $48 million through our primary initiative, the Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program.
But that’s not all. We recently wrote, advocated for, and helped pass improvements to the Tax Credit Scholarship Program to better serve participating families and help more of the 26,000 kids on the waitlist get a scholarship.
Next year, we have even bigger plans to award more scholarships, provide more certainty to participating families and schools, and extend this life-changing program. Will you join us to reach these ambitious goals?
Thanks to a group of generous donors, all charitable gifts to Empower Illinois’ 501c3 in support of our nonprofit work will be DOUBLED. That means an extra $1 will be donated for each $1 you invest to empower family voices, grow the TCS Community, and spark vital advocacy and grassroots work to protect and improve the TCS Program.
We are only 16% away from our goal. Can we count on you to take advantage of this matching gift opportunity to joining us in advocating for Illinois’ kids, families, schools, and communities? Click here to donate.
