From this page, you will have the option of making a gift to DPIL, making an undesignated gift to United Way, and/or starting their own fundraiser. As an incentive, if you help us raise $250 or more and receive a United Way Swag Bag!

When you create your own fundraising page, it will automatically pre-populate the DPIL message, which can then be customized.

Individual Fundraisers set their own goal amount, can upload their own photo and have the ability to customize their message. They will have their own link to share, have a unique keyword for texting, receive notifications when a friend makes a gift, and will receive a summary and thank you from us after the campaign.

This holiday season consider giving the gift of reading to a child in our community. We’re proud of the success of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, but we can do more. One $25 gift provides a full year of books (12 total) for one child a gift of as little as $10 a month can provide books to five children.  Help kids fall in love with books and fuel a love of literacy among Sangamon County kids.
