While the McCormick Foundation remains committed to our Civics programming, we are looking to current partners or new organizations to take the lead with educational outreach programs previously managed by Foundation staff.
This shift in program focus will bring an end to the Freedom Express, which is no longer available for onsite school and community visits. Additionally, our Discovery Trunk lending program and distribution of Freedom in the News will come to a close as well.
The McCormick Foundation recognizes the key role educators play in strengthening the civic education system in Illinois. We remain committed to investing in nonprofits that provide high-quality civic education programming and resources to educators.
