Center for Economic Progress' Fundraiser:

Give Families a Financial Cushion

Center for Economic Progress' Photo

THE STORY:

One in five Illinois families lacks the financial cushion to weather an unexpected job loss or medical emergency. A single event can send these families into a cycle poverty.   You can protect them.

From January, our 800 volunteers will work side by side with 20,000 low-income Illinois families.  In just one hour, they will help them access an average of $2,000 in earned tax refunds.  With your help, we will have the extra time and resources to take the next step, setting up a savings account to deposit that money and create a financial lifeline for the next time a child is sick or a car breaks down.

Now, when a child gets sick or a car breaks down and a family can't get to work, they will have the resources they need to stay above the poverty line and move forward. With your help, we'll help thousand of hard-working Illinois familes protect themselves from finanicial shocks this year.
