Give the Gift of Reading

A small investment in our children today will pay a lifetime of dividends!

Since launching Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, United Way of Central Illinois has provided more than 169,000 books to help children across Sangamon and Menard Counties to share the joy of reading at home!

We understand, a small investment will have a tremendous impact on families and futures, and with your gift, you will be helping parents and children begin a lifelong journey of learning together.

How your gift helps:

Your gift of reading supports Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which provides free books to preschool children in Sangamon and Menard Counties. One $25 gift provides a full year of books (12 total) for one child.

The program is open to all children, under the age of 5, who live in Sangamon County, and it is completely free to families — they just have to sign up!

A charitable gift of $25 or more will help United Way of Central Illinois:

  • Improve community literacy, creating stronger families, a stronger economy, and providing a lifetime of opportunity for our children
  • Ensure our community’s children are prepared to learn and succeed

Your gift of reading at work:

  • A $25 charitable gift will provide a full year’s worth of monthly books to a child in Sangamon and Menard Counties.
  • A $100 charitable gift will provide a full year’s worth of books to 4 children in Sangamon and Menard Counties.
  • A $250 charitable gift will provide a full year’s worth of books to 10 children in Sangamon and Menard Counties.

This year consider giving the gift of reading to a child in our community.
