In order to help Ronald McDonald House Charities serve and sustain families who need it most, State Sen. Win Stoller (R-Germantown Hills) sponsored legislation to create the Ronald McDonald House Charities Fund Tax Checkoff.
“The Ronald McDonald House Charities provides an invaluable service to families faced with the medical hardships of a sick child,” said Sen. Stoller. “This tax checkoff program will help ensure that Ronald McDonald House can continued to provide assistance to Illinois families who need it.”
Senate Bill 81 adds the Ronald McDonald House Charities Fund to the state’s tax checkoff program. The tax checkoff program allows Illinois taxpayers to designate whole dollar amounts of $1 or more to designated charities or causes.
“Ronald McDonald House Charities’ mission is to keep families close. This tax checkoff program supporting Ronald McDonald Houses creates a tremendous opportunity for more families to be served when they are facing one of the most difficult times in their lives, caring for their sick child,” said Amber Kaylor, CEO of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois. “We appreciate the leadership of Senator Win Stoller for championing this new program that will allow individuals to voluntarily make contributions resulting in expanded mission delivery across Illinois including the twenty-nine counties covered by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois.”
Senate Bill 81 unanimously passed both the Illinois Senate and House, and will now head to the Governor’s desk.
