How to make a donation

Give to the Heart of Illinois United Way Community Impact Fund

A donation to our Community Impact Fund is one of the easiest, most powerful ways to make a charitable investment in your community. It’s not just your single donation going to a single organization; your donation is combined with donations from thousands of donors to help improve lives. More than 90 local volunteers evaluate the Community Impact Fund’s education, financtial stability and health programs to ensure your donation meets identified needs.

Direct Your Donation

You also have the option of directing your donation to a specific United Way partner agency, or you can exclude an agency so they will not receive your funds.
