Scholarships for Kids. Tax Credits for You.
Empower Illinois has a big, bold mission rooted in the simple belief that every child should have access to high quality education options. What better way to celebrate the holiday season than giving a child in need access to their best-fit school?
WHO ARE YOU HELPING?
By making a tax credit scholarship gift to your favorite Illinois private school, you can provide direct scholarships for K-12 students from low-income and working-class families and receive a powerful 75% credit on your Illinois state taxes. 100% of recipients qualify based on need, and 95% of donations go directly to scholarships.
