Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

In Partnership with Jocko Valley Library

Inspire the love of reading with the IMAGINATION LIBRARY! Join TODAY for FREE!

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five in participating communities within the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

Inspired by her father’s inability to read and write Dolly started her Imagination Library in 1995 for the children within her home county. Today, her program spans four countries and mails over 1 million free books each month to children around the world.

“When I was growing up in the hills of East Tennessee, I knew my dreams would come true. I know there are children in your community with their own dreams. They dream of becoming a doctor or an inventor or a minister. Who knows, maybe there is a little girl whose dream is to be a writer and singer.

The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.”

By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Moreover, she could insure that every child would have books, regardless of their family’s income.

Fiscal Agent Services

Did you know the Arlee CDC serves as a fiscal agent for individuals or groups providing services to our community?   As a fiscal agent we can act as a 501(c)(3) to help you qualify for grants, provide fiscal management services, and where requested, provide project management support.   

SAMPLE PROJECTS WE SERVE:

TEDxArlee   In May 2015 Arlee became the smallest community in the country to have a licensed TED event.   Our topic was the importance of cross cultural understanding and we had 15 TED talks by members of our community, including High School Students.   To hear the talks go to: http://tedxarlee.org/video-links/

Event coordinator Anna Baldwin has this to say about her experience with the Arlee CDC:  “When I began planning the TEDxArlee event, I knew I would need a fiscal agent. This agent would need tax-exempt status, the ability to take deposits and cut checks and record-keeping capabaility.   The Arlee CDC served all of these functions perfectly. I could not have asked for a more capable and convenient fiscal agent for my event.”

SPRINGHOUSE RESOURCES MISSION

Website:  https://www.springhouseresource.org/

Mission Statement: To support the students, educators, and communities of the Flathead Reservation so our youth can reach their academic and personal potential.

Spring House Resource will provide support to students and educators in publicly funded schools to help students reach their potential. This assistance may take the form of cash support for projects or it may be a service Spring House can provide or assist with. The goal is to fill the gaps so students don’t miss out. Each funded application focuses on a specific project that will provide a unique opportunity for students.
