Building Civic Cent$

Your voice has given students a voice to help improve their schools and communities.

We are inspired to top our goal!

The Challenge Grant Campaign will be extended until the end of February, 2020. Donations will be matched up to $10,000. The match is generously provided by Kris and Ed Kazemek, sustaining supporters of Our American Voice.

Your gift today will double support for Our American Voice.

Our American Voice® Across Illinois

In 27 communities across Illinois, over 1000 students are learning

the American democratic process works. They are leading their

communities in collaboration for positive change. These civically

engaged students will write the history of their generation.

Your financial support of OAV, in partnership with the Barat Education Foundation,

amplifies these student voices:

“OAV has changed my life because I have been able to create a connection with

my community through my service.”

“OAV has opened a door for me… changed me by teaching me that I have a choice…

helped me think about people in our community, so everybody takes a stand and helps each other.”

We wish to especially thank the following generous supporters to our Challenge Grant Campaign.
