Our work is to ensure that every child in Illinois—particularly those who are the most over-burdened and under-resourced—have access to the resources and opportunities they need to succeed in school and in life. Since our founding 50 years ago, in 1969, Illinois Action for Children has worked to build systems of early care and education that help strengthen families and communities.
There are many ways you can join in our celebratory milestone and help to make the lives of our children brighter. You can learn more about our ongoing campaigns below, or click here to make a general donation to support IAFCs most critical needs.
You don’t need a magic wand to help make our children’s wishes come true…
…but we do need people like you to share our unwavering commitment to and investment in providing all of Illinois’ children with the tools to achieve their greatest potential.
Working together, we can continue advancing our rich history of integrated advocacy, research and program innovation into the next half of a century with even greater strength and resolve to create a better Illinois—where every child’s wishes for a brighter future can come true.
