Transform K-12 Education


Education philanthropy in Illinois makes up less than 1% of K-12 spending. With your help, we can change this–and provide assistance directly to students who are struggling with resource inequality. A charitable donation to Empower Illinois’ 501(c)(3) operations funds will allow us to activate our mission to expand quality education options for Illinois’ low-income and working-class families.

A charitable gift to Empower Illinois is a great option for those who want to champion education options in Illinois, but do not have Illinois tax liability.


Unlike tax credit scholarship donations, gifts made here to Empower Illinois' 501(c)(3) operations are not eligible for a state tax credit, but may be eligible for a federal deduction.
