Invest in Kids Contributions, Scholarship Applications Still Being Accepted

While the website for Invest in Kids Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) Empower Illinois is temporarily offline due to overwhelming website traffic experienced on their January 31st launch, it is important to note the remaining eight SGOs are online and available to accept scholarship applications now.

A complete list of SGOs can be found by clicking here.

The Illinois Department of Revenue’s (IDOR) Invest in Kids website remains fully functional. Taxpayers wishing to make a contribution may start the process by visiting the Contributors Tax Credit Information Page on IDOR’s website.

With more than $44 million in contributions already pledged, the Invest in Kids program is paving the way to provide school choice for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois.
