The Illinois Patriot Education Fund is a fantastic organization that funds scholarships for veteran or active duty military as well as their spouses and dependents. Education is a part of the solution. IPEF targets their focus on those enlisted military families with ranks of E-5 and below. For many, higher education through college or certified vocational training — and then a career can be the mission. Our veterans need the highest level of support services including healthcare, education and career opportunities. This is too much for the government alone to take on. Illinois Patriot Education Fund is a part of the solution.
To inspire others to replicate this fundraising model on a state-by-state basis in order to influence local, state, and federal government to enhance the educational benefits, beyond those provided by the Post-9/11 GI Bill, to our service men and women; and the families of these men and women who have been wounded, disabled or killed while serving our country. We also support and partner with programs that provide financial literacy skills to our Illinois military families.
