Giving Tuesday 2023

Did you know?

1 in 3 Hoosier children still need help reading at grade level by third grade.

Help us empower our youngest generation by helping us raise $2000 for local early childhood literacy programs this Giving Tuesday.


$26 Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Sponsorship 

For just $26, you can sponsor a child and provide them with a monthly delivery of delightful, age-appropriate books. It's a simple yet impactful way to nurture a love for reading from the very beginning.

$50 Bright By Text Sponsorship 

Your donation gives 20 parents FREE access to Bright by Text, a new initiative launching this January thanks to a grant from the Early Years Initiative & Elkhart County Community Foundation. By connecting to Bright by Text, parents will receive messages with information, local resources, games, and activities tailored to their child’s age to support their development, health, safety. 

$150 READ UNITED Classroom Sponsorship 

With a $150 donation, you provide books and resources for a READ UNITED volunteer reader and classroom. Each month through READ UNITED, volunteers read a book and connect with a classroom of students in an area school. This engages kids with community members while also deepening their excitement about reading. 


Be the One who ensures every child has access to the transformative power of books. Become a Crossroads United Way supporter or volunteer and let's write the story of our future, one page at a time, together.

Every Gift May Double! All gifts to Crossroads United Way may be eligible for a 1:1 match thanks to Indiana United Ways and Lilly Endowment. *Up to $300,000 total for Elkhart, LaGrange and Noble Counties.
