What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global holiday dedicated to giving back to your local community that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Why give on Giving Tuesday?

Your #GivingTuesday gift to United Way of Lake County will help expand our Home Visiting Program. Home Visiting delivers free early intervention services to the home of families with infants and preschool-age children who are struggling with poverty and who have limited access to health and community services. Funding will support more high-risk families in North Chicago, Waukegan and Zion with their most critical needs.

Our goal of $10,000 will support a holistic approach to caring for families by providing a Home Visiting nurse and caseworker to perform safety assessments and wellness checks for the neediest families in our community. In our fight for the health of every person in Lake County, we are offering hope and help where it’s needed the most.

The Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County will be matching 100% of Giving Tuesday donations up to $5,000. A matching gift means that our impact will double for children and families that need and deserve our help.
