We are committed to ensuring that, as federal grantees, your membership dollars (about 18%) of our budget) are not used for lobbying. Yet, the workof advocacy is core to our mission - it's why your association exists. It requires a wide range of activity: collecting and organizing data, building coalitions with other advocates, communicating with members, and education legislators and staff at the state and federal level. This requires resources like websites and apps, marketing and communications, time and travel - especially to Washington.
Contributions make it possible for us to expand our network of advocacy and strenthen our collective capacity to better defend the critical work you do every day - providing gold standard services and care to Illinois' most at-risk infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and their families. These voluntary contributions are critical for our advocacy efforts, building our capacity in Illinois and our nation's capital to:
