Support the ICPL for Johnson County Great Give Day on May 1st!

May 1st Johnson County Great Give Day!

What is Great Give Day? 

Johnson County Great Give Day is an annual collective day of giving, where donors are encouraged to learn more about new-to-them nonprofit organizations, the work of the nonprofit sector in Johnson County, and make a gift (or a few!) to support philanthropy in Johnson County. On this single day – May 1, 2024 – ALL Johnson County nonprofit organizations share, with one voice, the incredible work they are doing, the ways in which they support our communities, and fundraise for their individual organizations.

How can you participate?
