    Double Your Impact this Holiday Season!

    SCHEELS will match your gift (up to $2,500 total) made prior to December 20th.  

    Let's face it...this year has been a challenge for everyone.  The pandemic has changed the way we work, the way we socialize, and especially the way children learn.  Whether it's at school or at home, educators and children are facing challenges that none us imagined a year ago and it will take all of us, working together to make sure every child has the opportunity to succeed.

    United Way and its partners need you help to make sure local programs supporting kindergarten readiness, on-time achievement and high school graduation have the support they need to help families navigate today's learning challenges.

    When you make a gift to our education programming this holiday season, you're helping to support eight local programs supporting youth throughout our community, including:

    • Comprehensive Mentoring Program @ Big Brothers Big Sisters
    • Project Learn @ Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Illinois
    • Camp Compass & Club Compass at Compass for Kids
    • Girl Scout Leadership Experience Outreach @ Girl Scouts of Central Illinois
    • Foster Grandparent Program @ One Hope United
    • Camp Kindergarten: Ready, Set, Go! @ Springfield Public Schools
    • Freedom School & Brandon OutREACH @ Springfield Urban League, and
    • Dolly Parton's Imagination Library 

    100% of your gift will benefit these programs focused on kindergarten readiness, on-time achievement and high school graduation. 

    As a community, we all win when a child succeeds in school and now more than ever, our education programs need your help.  Join us this holiday season with your gift of learning and help children throughout our community dream, learn and achieve.
