Robert R. McCormick Foundation

$2 million

As part of the McCormick Foundation’s $6 million annual investment in education, the Foundation anticipates at least $2 million in new investments for the Collective Illinois Effort in 2015. These new investments will leverage federal initiatives such as the Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge grant, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships, and home visiting expansion to ensure children and their families in Illinois have access to high-quality early learning services that support success in school and life.
