Improve a Child's Chance for Success
The government mandates that every child should be educated, but it remains the parents' right to choose the best options for their children. Practically, though, this has been true only for the well-to-do who can move to a neighborhood with a great school or pay private school tuition. Now, however, the people's representatives have created a clear path for change!
In August, 2017, the Illinois Legislature passed the Invest in Kids Act as part of a budget package and allocated $75 million for scholarships through tax-credit contributions. This legislation funds scholarships for qualifying low-income students to attend the nonpublic school of their choice. The Children's Tuition Fund of Illinois (CTF IL) is officially authorized to serve students, schools, and contributors as a Scholarship Granting Organization and can start accepting contributions on January 2, 2018. Your contribution will change a child's life!
