Your Impact
Your donation on #GivingTuesday will empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential, accept a valued role in their community and lead rich, rewarding lives. Your help can ensure that someone with a disability has the same opportunity to live, learn, work, and play in their community – just like everyone else.

Being able to live a full, active life in the community like everybody else, regardless of any disability is an extraordinary thing. Your support makes it all possible. We can't do what we do without you.

What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, November 28, 2017 has been designated as a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world to come together to celebrate generosity and to give.

You don't need to be a millionaire or world leader to give back. #GivingTuesday was created with the belief that when everyday people join together in the spirit of giving back extraordinary things can happen.

The Match
Your gift to Search will be matched by The Coleman Foundation through its #ILGIVE for #GivingTuesday Matching Grants Program. The Foundation is offering a generous match on #GivingTuesday, up to a maximum of $10,000.

Search is a member of the 2017 #ILGive Campaign.

#ILGive (prounounced "I'll Give") is a 24-hour digital fundraising event on #GivingTuesday that connects individuals with the causes that matter to them, and empowers donors to give to the local nonprofits that tackle our communities' most critical issues. #ILGive is an initiative of Forefront, Illinois’ statewide membership association for nonprofits, grantmakers, public agencies, advisors, and sector allies.

Last year, #ILGive for #GivingTuesday raised $11.3 million for Illinois social good organizations.
