Become a Part of Our Volunteer Team

“There is Nothing Stronger than the Heart of a Volunteer.”Lt. Col. James H. Doolittle WWII

Any great event or effort is only as good as the people working behind the scenes. The people working with Illinois Patriot Education Fund need your help. We could use a few more good men, women and children to help us to ensure the success of our cause, which can only help families through our fundraising efforts, sponsors and events.

This is your chance to get involved in a wonderful organization at the grass roots level. We are looking for leaders, creative ideas, and folks that know how to get things done. We are depending on you to take the initiative and start building our Chicago team.  Please Contact Us and specify your interests in the message. You may choose from one of the categories below.
