Press Secretary, Office of Lisa Madigan
Attorney General, State of Illinois
As you requested, here’s the first installment of information we’ve surfaced in our examination of the now-defunct Save A Life Foundation (SALF). The primary link in the posting below on the American Thinker (AT) website is to a spreadsheet (attached separately for your convenience) that the AG’s staff can use to navigate through the relevant FOIAs assembled in tracking government grant monies the foundation received from 1993-2009, with the exception of the early years when amounts were small and the granting agencies nowhere indicated.
The discrepancy noted, between what the granting agencies report as having given SALF versus what SALF’s Form 990s reported to the IL AG as having received, is based on the assumption that the grant totals supplied by the state and federal agencies involved are accurate.
Please consider this the first installment in that more information – not pertaining to grant numbers but relevant to your inquiry – will follow as soon as it can be presented in an orderly fashion for the AG’s consideration.
As I promised several weeks ago, in the AT article I’ve indicated that the $25K given to SALF by the IL AG’s office did not happen under the current AG’s administration.
I trust the AG’s office will find this information of benefit in the pursuit of thorough and accurate data concerning the Save A Life Foundation.
