How We Work

Illinois Action for Children

Our Strategies

Whether we are funding, leading, or supporting, we work collaboratively with our partners to pursue our shared goals through four strategies:

Grassroots Organizing & Movement Building
We use our resources and influence to help galvanize people-driven movements for change.
Advocacy, Policy & Systems Building
We partner with advocacy and community groups and public officials to help shape and advocate for policy and systems solutions that address root causes.
Leadership & Workforce Development
We continuously invest in building the capacity of current and future generations of changemakers, especially those from communities most impacted by harm.
Innovative Models
We collaborate with others to help incubate, launch, and sustain new programs, ideas, and institutions.
