This Year's Project: Gage County United Way - Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


About Our Organization

The United Way pays half of the costs for providing the books in Gage County and the Imagination Library funds the remaining fee. The monthly price of the program in 2014 was $400, but has grown to $1,200 a month in 2022. Annually the costs are over $14,000. A donation of $25 can sponsor one child per year.  Imagination Library is currently one of 14 partner agencies that the Gage County United Way supports financially. 



Current Project: Gage County United Way - Dolly Parton's Imagination Library



Imagination Library is an early childhood education initiative that provides FREE books to children, from birth to age five.  Once enrolled the child will receive a new, age-appropriate book delivered in their name to their home once monthly until their fifth birthday.  While the program is free to any family living in Gage County, regardless of income, Gage County United Way is responsible for securing funds to cover the cost of books and shipping fees. We currently serve 573 children.

With your support, we can help every young child find the spark of their own imagination through reading books!
