Nonprofit registration is now open for Give DeKalb County 2019.

This 24-hour fundraising event will be held on May 2. During this giving day, donors can support nonprofit organizations by making donations online or in person at the DeKalb County Community Foundation.

Give DeKalb County is coordinated by the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership, a program of the Community Foundation. The previous five giving days combined have raised over $1.8 million for participating nonprofit organizations.

A bonus pool of funds is being raised and each donation made during Give DeKalb County is boosted by a percentage of these bonus funds.

The bonus pool is made possible by the support of community partners including the DeKalb County Community Foundation, The Suter Company, State Farm – Keicher Insurance Agency, First Midwest Bank, Morningstar Media Group, Thrivent Financial – Shawn Blobaum, Heartland Bank and Trust Co., The Chulick Family Fund, Paul Callighan, Cathy Doederlein, Scott and Kristin Miller, Dan and Kathy Schewe, and Lynne Waldeland.

The following media sponsors are helping raise awareness about this community-wide event: 102.3 – The Coyote, Banner Up Signs, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, DeKalb County Historical & Genealogical Society, First National Bank, Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce, Lehan Drugs, LePrint Express, Morningstar Media Group, OC Creative, Provident Direct, Sandwich Area Chamber of Commerce, Shaw Media, Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, and WDKB.

“Give DeKalb County is a unique opportunity to learn more about our incredible nonprofit sector and to give back by supporting participating organizations,” said Ben Bingle, director of DCNP. “Whether your donation is large or small, everyone can make an impact through Give DeKalb County. We live in a very generous community and it will be exciting to see that generosity come to life on May 2.”

Participating nonprofits must be 501(c)(3) organizations located in and/or serving DeKalb County that are legally registered with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office and 2019 DCNP members by March 1, 2019. The deadline to register for Give DeKalb County as a participating organization is March 31, 2019.
