Your Donation Matters!
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Prevention First relies on the generous donations of individuals and businesses to maintain and expand our many free programs and services in Illinois.
Thanks to our supporters, we are able to reach thousands of people in Illinois each year with education, programs and services designed to prevent youth alcohol, tobacco and other drug use.
Prevention First is dedicated to providing the highest quality services while remaining fiscally responsible for the funds we receive from you. We consistently maintain a higher than average percentage of spending for programs compared to other nonprofits.
Thank you for helping us prevent children and teenagers from starting use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
In spite of tremendous challenges faced in 2012, the driving force behind our work remains unchanged: Substance abuse is one of our nation’s largest public health problems, with costly and devastating outcomes. We know it is preventable, and that by focusing on youth we can ameliorate the significant impact substance abuse has on their lives, their families, their schools and their communities. We thank you so much for your support, and look forward to our continued work together.
