Back 2 School Illinois Replaces ICECF
We’ve changed our name to better reflect who we are and the work we do. In the coming months all of our communications will be converted to Back 2 School Illinois (B2SI) from the Illinois Currency Exchange Foundation, NFP (ICECF). The Board of Directors voted in the fall of last year to make the name change. While our name may be changing, our commitment to education has not. Our mission still remains; to create and support educational opportunities that enrich the lives of Illinois children.
In 2015 we will continue to support three initiatives. Our biggest continues to be the Back 2 School program, providing free school supplies to children in need. The other two programs we focus on are the Power Up! Boot Camp, which teaches youth about the importance of exercise and proper nutrition, and providing college scholarships to high school seniors.
