Advocating for Invest in Kids Program in Springfield.

St Anthony Schools had a team at the Capitol in Springfield on November 30th, advocating for our school families that receive scholarships through the Invest in Kids program.

The Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program was enacted in 2017 as a pilot program. Through tax credits, the program promotes and incentivizes Businesses and Individuals to contribute to approved Scholarship funds for qualified private schools. Scholarship funds from the Invest in Kids program help a significant number of St. Anthony School families each year. The program is set to sunset at the end of 2023, yet Illinois families and lawmakers are lobbying to make the program permanent. We thank our local congresspeople for supporting this program and speaking on the behalf of our students and all families when it comes to school choice and Invest in Kids!
