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


  • Supporting the widespread distribution of information on public policy that impacts Illinois Latinos, through an annual report on Latinos and the Illinois economy.


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