Invest in Kids Act Donation

Invest in a JCA Student – IL Tax Credit Scholarships


In August 2017, with bipartisan support, the Illinois House and Senate passed a comprehensive education funding bill which was signed into law by the Governor. The bill included a new five-year program for Tax Credit Scholarships (TCS) for students in private schools that will create more equity in school funding throughout Illinois. In the spring of 2021, the program was extended to 2023.

THE CHALLENGE: 100% of JCA Faculty making a donation by December 31, 2021.
