[December 13, 2019]  After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday helps remind us to support our community organizations. #ILGive is a campaign to engage Illinoisans in not only participating, but giving to organizations in the communities where we live.

The United Way of Logan County will be participating in this campaign this year.

GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE on December 3, 2019.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on December 3rd, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to charities and causes they support.

Positive impacts in Logan County result from gifts to the United Way of Logan County, which helps to support 15 different non-profit organizations throughout the year that work in our community to help those in need right here in our county. Over $99,000 was distributed among these organizations in 2018 and $87,000 was distributed to 14 programs in 2019.

A $25 donation provides 5 meals or 2 round trips to a medical appointment for a local senior, provided through the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois.

A $50 donation provides a year of scouting for two local youths who could not otherwise participate, provided by the Boy Scouts of America. These are just some examples of the impact local donations have in our community, provided by the agencies that are assisted by the United Way.
