Unlike many non-profits, the Nortern Illinois Red Ribbon Program DOES NOT receive any federal of state grants we rely solely on the generosity of local philanthropists. In addition, we are a totally 100% volunteer organization. Every dollar we receive goes directly to the programs that benefit area youth.
Our program is structured to involve all schools, organizations, and faith communities in Northern Illinois. Our programs are developed and implemented by a student cabinet representing about 12 schools in northern Illinois.
We are a 510 (c) (3) non-profit organization

Prayer for Doners
Teach me to be generous as you have been generous with me. Teach me that all I am and have are gifts from you and gifts, Lord, are meant to be shared.
Show me the joys of generosity. Help me to understand that others, perhaps unknown to me, depend on me for help.
Lord, bless those who have been so kind in sharing their Time, Talent, or Treasure with the Red Ribbon Program that their efforts may reduce the negative effects that drugs and violence are haviong on our children, families, and community.
And Lord, encourage volunteers to come forth and serve the Red Ribbon Program that they may safe-guard the most precious gift you have entrusted to us…your children.
We pray in God’s name,
