Tax Credit Scholarship (TCS)

The Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program provides Illinois children access to scholarships that could cover up to 100% of their tuition - depending on financial need. I write to you today to ask that you consider donating to Empower Illinois’ Tax Credit Scholarship program and designating St. Joseph Catholic School, Libertyville as the recipient of your funds. When you contribute to this program, you will receive a state tax credit equal to 75 percent of your contribution. What an amazing opportunity- support St. Joseph students while significantly reducing your state tax bill. Beginning December 1st, any donation made through Empower Illinois will be matched 2:1 while matching funds last. Please don’t hesitate as matching funds are limited; see the step by step directions HERE to start the process so you can make your donation.


Even in our community of Libertyville, the need is great for many families, especially now due to the pandemic. This year, we have 23 students who qualify for a tax credit scholarship totalling over $102,000. The only way we can fill this continued need is by the generous support of donors like you. 


As you know, St. Joseph Catholic School offers an outstanding education rooted in faith and service. I ask that you please consider making a donation to Empower Illinois and designating the funds to St. Joseph Catholic School, Libertyville.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 847.362.0730 or [email protected].
