Contribute to Children's Tuition Fund of Illinois—Make Dreams Come True!


How do you receive a 75% state tax credit? It's easy! For example, if you owe $7,500 in Illinois state income tax and you contribute $10,000 to CTF IL, you eliminate your entire income tax liability because 75% of $10,000 is $7,500.

We can accept contributions beginning in 2018 along with certification of those contributions.
