Help all Illinois students graduate ready for college, career, and citizenship.

Despite a challenging climate this year, Advance Illinois worked with partners in communities around the state to push for:

  • More equitable funding for our schools,
  • Higher standards and more honest assessments for students and teachers,
  • Improved data collection to measure our progress across the
    birth-to-postsecondary system, and
  • Stronger pathways to college and career.

We still have a long way to go and many stubborn achievement gaps to close, but we are confident in our ability to drive change—together with your support. Please make a gift today to help us advance Illinois.
