We Did It!

After all the mail was opened this week, and after all the end-of-year donations were tallied, I am excited to report that we met our matching grant opportunity! The full $100,000 match has been reached and will be added directly to our ongoing pro-life, pro-family work. God answered our prayers through His people once again!

We are truly overwhelmed by the support of fellow Illinoisans that we received over the last few days. I sincerely thank the good folks from every region our state and would you believe, even from places like Massachusetts, Florida, Indiana, and Virginia who invested in Illinois Family Institute. THANK YOU!

We also must thank the generous donors who made this end-of-year matching grant possible. And I thank you and your partnership with us that is so critical to defending what is good and true, which in turn will lead to a better Illinois—a place where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.

We have every reason to anticipate a daunting and challenging year ahead, but I am encouraged by your response to the matching challenge, and we are excited to work with you to seize the opportunities that will come our way in 2019.

Thank you too for all your prayers and words of encouragement and for the confidence you place in us. To God be the glory!

Happy New Year,
