The Illinois Equal Justice Foundation is celebrating 25 years of powering legal aid organizations across Illinois and helping millions access our civil justice system.

To mark this milestone, the IEJF is launching a one-time 25th Anniversary Campaign Fund to future-proof our organization so we can continue to reliably fund Illinois’ legal aid programs and bring critical services to communities in need.
