On May 3, 2016 Econ Illinois is joining thousands of nonprofits nationwide in raising money to help improve our local communities. Last year 2015, Give Local America raised over $68 million dollars for nonprofits and Give Local DeKalb County generated nearly $190,000 in a single day! Donations will go a long way in helping us reach the students of Illinois. Plus, gifts given that day will receive proportional matching funds from of pool of $50,000 - making every dollar go even further! Donating to Econ Illinois will support Illinois K-12 students in becoming financially responsible through our economic education and financial literacy programs.
