Our donors are not making political contributions to a political candidate. They are supporting a cause. And since everyone has the right to support causes they believe in privately and without fear of harassment, intimidation or reprisal, the Illinois Opportunity Project is not required by law to disclose our donors.
Our donors – like anyone who uses their constitutional rights to support a cause – aren’t “Dark”, they’re free.
