Introducing Donum Vitae

At this moment in Illinois history, there are few investments more valuable than those that provide hope for a future where the right to life of the most vulnerable humans is, again, protected in our state.

Every gift to Illinois Right to Life is a gift of life. Because of this, we are happy to introduce Donum Vitae, a giving society  that recognizes those who have made sacrificial gifts towards our work and those that, through a planned gift, are ensuring our lifesaving work can continue in the years to come.

As we head into this Christmas season and reflect on our core mission, we felt it was appropriate to establish a giving society that embodies the very thing that we seek to protect “the gift of life”. Donum Vitae means The Gift of Life and, as a Donum Vitae member, you will be our partners at Illinois Right to Life as we work to educate the people of our state and restore protections to preborn children and their mothers.
