Give DeKalb County!
On May 2, 2019 we will host our giving day to raise funds for 501(c)3 nonprofits that are located in and/or serving DeKalb County. Give DeKalb County is a 24-hour fundraising event designed to build community, encourage philanthropy, connect donors to nonprofits, promote collaboration, and raise awareness about the nonprofit sector. Donors of all ages and walks of life are encouraged to express their generosity on May 2, 2019 and we hope you will join us in this extraordinary philanthropic event!
To participate, nonprofits must be:
- Located in, serving, and/or conducting organizational activities in DeKalb County, IL
- Legally recognized by the IRS as 501(c)3 organizations (check IRS compliance here)
- Legally registered with the Attorney General’s Office to solicit donations in Illinois (learn about annual registration here)
- 2019 DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) members by March 1, 2019 (learn about DCNP membership here)
Please note that churches and K-12 schools are not eligible to participate. Additionally, there is a participation fee based on the organization’s operating budget. This fee is withheld from the final donation check so there is no need to pay it upfront.
The previous five giving days have raised over $1.8 million combined and we hope to significantly add to this total on May 2, 2019!
The Foundation will also host a donor lounge from 8am to 8pm where walk in donations can be made via cash or check!
