Summer Match Update
Summer Match Update
Written By David E. Smith   |   08.23.21

There are just a few weeks remaining until IFI’s $45,000 Summer Matching Grant deadline of September 6th. So far, we have raised almost $30, 000. We are three-quarters of the way to our goal! Thank you!

But that also means we must raise $10,000 between today and Labor Day!

These funds will help us work diligently to educate and equip pastors, church leaders, parents and grandparents about the spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual hazards in our government schools. Many Christian leaders and parents know about some of these threats and only need to be encouraged to explore their educational options. Others need to see the evidence and read/listen to the growing list of concerns, including corrupting curricula, anti-American falsehoods and other social “justice” agendas to say nothing about the horrific academic record of many Illinois school districts.

We need your help to build a robust budget to do this important work. If you can donate $25, $50 or even $100 before Labor Day ends, it will be matched dollar for dollar. No donation is too small… and no donation is too big.

We have big plans for this initiative. Plans to counter the attacks on our children, faith and our family life in Illinois at their roots. To learn more, listen to this short video clip by Rev. Ceasar LeFlore, our Field Director of the IFI Public School Exit initiative.

We need your prayer covering and financial support for this vital initiative as we move forward to bring this critical message to others!
