We are Awake Illinois
This grassroots organization was launched by everyday parents and citizens in May 2021. During 2020, many of us "awakened" to the issues affecting our communities, our children, and our liberties. Awake Illinois chartered the first chapter in Naperville, Illinois, and is now expanding throughout all 4 corners of the state with 30+ county-based chapters.
Thanks to the volunteerism of our chapter chairs and members, our advocacy is waking up Illinoisans each day while empowering citizens to elevate their voices on topics of education, equality, legislation, civic involvement, and social welfare causes. Awake IL also embraces numerous philanthropic opportunities to advance our communities.
Awake IL operates on an extremely lean budget with many expenses covered personally by Awake IL leadership and/or volunteers. The annual $50 membership fee alongside small donors support our social welfare advocacy, civic empowerment, and affiliated administrative expenses.
Your generosity is appreciated to ensure more communities are awakened
and empowered to advocate for progress in Illinois. Contact us with 990 inquires.
