Announcing IFI’s End-Of-Year Matching Challenge
Announcing IFI’s End-Of-Year Matching Challenge
Written By David E. Smith   |   12.10.19

We are pleased to announce the 2019 end-of-year matching challenge! In an effort to help us raise $140,000 by the end of this month, a number of generous donors have offered to match donations to IFI all the way up to $70,000! So between now and the end of the year, you can double the impact of your giving!

Yes, you read that right! Every donation to IFI through the end of the year are DOUBLED upon receipt.

So if you give $50 it becomes $100.

If you give $100 it becomes $200.

If you give $500 we realize $1,000!

If you donate $1,000, it is the same as giving $2,000, etc.

Thanks to the strong support of pro-family citizens in Illinois (and beyond), IFI is able to fulfill our mission to boldly bring a Biblical perspective to public policy.

End-of-year giving is critical to us, as more than 30 percent of all charitable giving happens in December, and around a third of that giving comes in the last three days of the year.

For twenty-seven years now, IFI has worked to counter the Left’s aggressive efforts to advance oppressive and pernicious legislation at the Capitol and to exploit public schools for the purpose of transforming the hearts and minds of other people’s children. The fact that we are always vastly out-spent and out-manned doesn’t dissuade us from fighting for what is true and good. We are accustomed  to battling against great odds and have been able to stop or forestall many of their plans.

The stakes in 2020 will remain high. The Left doesn’t give up on their godless worldview or walk away from the battle. They are already planning marches, forming coalitions and devising strategies. They are preparing to redouble their efforts in the 2020 election cycle to push their agenda in the media, through pop culture, in our government schools, and in our legislatures and courts.

If you and your family are still deciding which causes you will support at year end, please know that our campaign stretches from now until the end of the year. I’m a little biased, of course, but I hope that Illinois Family Institute makes your final list!

Together, with your prayers and support, IFI will continue to work to uphold the pro-life, pro-family truth in the public square in Illinois. Thank you for your support.

Please DONATE ONLINE or call the IFI office
at (708) 781-9328 to support our work.

Thank you for your support! We look forward to partnering with you in 2020 to stand courageously and winsomely for the values we share.

May God bless you during this Advent and Christmas season.

Executive Director

That will happen with your help in getting the 2020 IFI Voter Guide in the hands of more Illinois values voters, particularly those in districts where there are key races.
