UPDATE: Summertime Matching Challenge
Written By David E. Smith   |   08.09.21

We want to thank you for your response to our summertime matching challenge, which was offered to help fund our “Rescuing Our Children” initiative. This Matching Challenge was launched in mid-July and will end on Labor Day, and we are happy to report  that we have raised just over 50 percent of our goal so far.

We still need to raise approximately $20,000 over the next four weeks in order to realize the full matching challenge.

Any donation given or mailed by September 6th will go toward this challenge
and will be fully tax-deductible, lowering your 2021 tax burden.

Rev. Ceasar LeFlore, the Field Director of our Public School Exit initiative, put together this short two-minute video to appeal to our supporters to help us take advantage of this amazing matching challenge opportunity. Please watch or listen to his request:

Here are some ways you can give your tax-deductible donation:

  • Contribute online HERE.
  • Give a gift of stock or appreciated assets. Contact Colleen Garcia, IFI’s Financial Administrator, at (708) 781-9328 or email her HERE.
  • Mail your gift to: Illinois Family Institute, P.O. Box 876, Tinley Park, IL, 60477
  • We also accept credit card donations over the phone at (708) 781-9328 during normal business hours.

Thank you for considering this matching challenge. Your financial support and prayers are what makes our mission to protect and preserve life, marriage, family and liberty in Illinois possible.  THANK YOU!
