Designating your Donation

There are 5 regions in the State of Illinois. When reserving your tax credit with the Illinois Department of Revenue, it is important that you choose the region in which your designee(s) are located, not the region of your home address.

If you wish to designate to multiple regions, you must reserve tax credits in each region. You can choose multiple designees within a single region if your donation is $1,000 or more utilizing Empower Illinois as your SGO. After you have made your tax credit reservation, the Contribution Authorization Certificate will show the region you have chosen.

  • Region 1
  • Region 2
  • Region 3
  • Region 4
  • Region 5
