Illinois has a goal that 60 percent of adults will have college degrees by 2025. But without increasing our financial aid investment in low-income adult students, we will not be able to meet that goal. Illinois’ Monetary Award Program (MAP) can help low-income adult students in Illinois afford college, but every year, a smaller percentage of eligible adult students receive the grant.

Together, we will ensure more women, families, and communities can build their economic power and thrive.

All new or increased gifts will be matched by an anonymous donor!
