SYCAMORE – Nonprofit registration is now open for Give DeKalb County 2019. This 24-hour fundraising event will be held 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 more than $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 from the generous support of community partners, including: DCCF, The Suter Co., 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.
