Our work is to ensure that every child in Illinois — particularly those in need — have access to the resources they need to succeed in school and in life. Since our founding 50 years ago, in 1969, Illinois Action for Children has worked to create systems of early care and education that help strengthen families and communities.
During our 50th anniversary celebration, you can see all the ways you can help make a difference in the lives of our most fragile children. Please check out our ongoing campaigns below, or click here to make a general donation to support IAFCs most critical needs.
