Who We Are

A Voice for the Community

The Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus Foundation (ILLCF) is a non-partisan and tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization established in 2002 with three important goals:


  • To empower Illinois Latinos and increase access to federal, state and community programs in critically important areas;


  • To provide college scholarships for young Latino men and women who need assistance to further their education; and


  • To support research and the widespread distribution of policy reports through the Illinois Latino Public Policy Institute.


The Foundation’s Board of Directors includes members of the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus and others from Illinois Latino communities. 

ILLCF's Mission and Vision:

  • Increasing access to federal, state, and municipal resources that benefit Illinois Latinos, including initiatives that drive economic prosperity for Latinos, help them escape poverty and alleviate financial insecurity, ensure fair compensation and supportive work environments, and increased access to education and training for advancement in workplace and community.

  • Forming and sustaining partnerships with businesses and organizations in order to enhance economic and employment opportunities for Illinois Latinos, through workshops and panels, internships, facilitating communication with business, government education and the nonprofit sectors, career training, and networking.

  • Supporting the widespread distribution of information on public policy that impacts Illinois Latinos, through an annual report on Latinos and the Illinois economy, and via increased use of digital communication and social media.

  • Providing resources for young Latinos in Illinois to succeed in education, particularly through its college scholarship program that has already granted more than $800,000 to more than 500 students in Illinois.
