GIVE to child abuse and child neglect prevention efforts

You can join those Illinoisans who give more than $120,000 each year to the Child Abuse Prevention Fund, which supports child abuse prevention efforts across Illinois. Simply take three minutes to complete Schedule G when you file your Illinois income tax return. Your contribution to the Child Abuse Prevention Fund of $5, $10, $25 or whatever you choose supports efforts by nonprofits across the state to keep kids safe.

Many Illinoisans support efforts to keep kids safe throughout the year through the Children's Benefit Fund, which helps meet the needs of children at-risk for abuse or neglect that are not covered by state tax dollars. To contribute to the Children's Benefit Fund, a charitable trust administered by DCFS, mail your tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you choose to:

Children's Benefit Fund
