Brother James Court is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Most of BJC’s operational budget is awarded through Medicaid payments from the State of Illinois. However, we cannot operate on government funding alone. The remainder of the budget is raised from private donations, special events, initiatives, foundation grants, and corporate contributions. Please consider making a donation.
