Our Promise Today
for Rockford's Tomorrow
Support from Community Leaders for Rockford Promise:
City of Rockford
"Rockford Promise can be the critical link that improves higher education access and aspiration through building a funding system for our families and making life-long learning the pillar of our community."
Rockford Public Schools
"I fully support the idea of a Rockford Promise. I believe a community commitment to a location-based scholarship program like the Rockford Promise would both dramatically improve the lives of students and increase local property values.
President & CEO
Rockford Chamber of Commerce
"Rockford Promise has the potential to have a positive impact on the City of Rockford far beyond what one can imagine."
Winnebago County Board
"John W. Whitehead said, 'Children are the living messages we send to a time we will never see.' Rockford Promise provides an opportunity to build a brighter future for our community by supporting our children today."
President of Rockford Area Economic Development Council
"Increasing the number of college graduates attracts more businesses with higher-paying jobs and, thus, our community grows."
