It all started when…

A simple conversation sparked an idea.

A passionate volunteer had an idea to bring something innovative and exciting to Bloomington-Normal.

From there partnerships new (with Rivian Automotive) and old (with State Farm) started United Way of McLean County on a journey with Atlanta based non-profit 48 in 48.

From May 4 through May 6, 2018 , more than 250 local volunteers descended on the Rivian Automotive plant to open up a whole new world for local non-profits.

Over the next 48 hours, they created 48 brand new websites for 48 non-profits!! What a 180 for them in terms of creating a broader impact in this digital age.

With each of these websites valued at around $30,000, this created a $1.5 million impact!
