I am excited to share some good news with you about the $150,000 matching challenge we wrote about two weeks ago: The response to this challenge has been encouraging, and we are making good progress toward meeting the goal before the end of the year. But we still have a way to go to achieve our lofty goal.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters – moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas of Illinois – we have raised close to 60 percent of our goal thus far.

We still need to raise approximately $64,000 over the next ten days in order to realize the full matching challenge.

Any donation given or mailed by December 31st will go toward this matching challenge.

The stakes in 2022 remain high — especially given the fact that it is a post-census election year in which every state lawmaker and constitutional officer will be on the ballot. And we don’t want to be sitting on the sidelines at a time when we will have a chance to flip one or two Congressional seats here in Illinois in a year that favors the Republicans. The IFI Voter Guide will play a critical part in educating voters on which candidates support our values and which candidate have (or will) go along to get along with the swampy establishment.

We know all too well that the Left doesn’t give up on their godless worldview or walk away from the battle. Despite poor approval ratings for their leaders, they are preparing to redouble their efforts in the 2022 election cycle to push their agenda in the media, through pop culture, in our government schools, and in our legislatures and courts.

If we can learn anything from the Left, it’s to be tenacious, persevering, fearless, and bold.

We must be prepared to counter their message with our message of hope and truth! Will you stand with us in 2022 and double the impact of your donation today?

We cannot compete against this evil with fearful, self-serving silence. In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul exhorts the recipients, and us, to “be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.” Similarly, the Psalmist reminds us, to “be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” Now is the time to toughen up and stop playing it safe. We must speak and act boldly, knowing that we have a righteous cause and that Almighty God stands with us!

With your prayers and support, IFI will continue to speak unashamedly and unequivocally about the fundamental truths concerning life, marriage, faith, freedom, decency and the natural family.

We need your prayer covering and financial support!

As you consider how you can support IFI at this critical time of the year, ask yourself,

What would Illinois look like without the Illinois Family Institute pushing back hard against the ideology and efforts of Leftists?

What would the state look like if IFI were not here to alert, equip, and encourage Illinoisans and their families?

Please help us with a financial gift today in order that we can start next year strong. It is only through your support that we are able to work tirelessly to promote pro-family views.

With your prayers and support, IFI will continue to speak unashamedly and unequivocally about the fundamental truths concerning life, marriage, faith, freedom, decency and the natural family.
