Lincoln Community Foundation announced that Give to Lincoln Day will return for the eighth year on Thursday, May 30. Local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Lincoln and Lancaster County are encouraged to register by April 19 to participate at GiveToLincoln.com.
Every nonprofit organization will receive a proportional share of the $450,000 match fund, based upon its percentage of total dollars raised on May 30. This largest match fund ever is made possible by contributions from Lincoln Community Foundation and participating sponsors.
Last year, Give to Lincoln Day raised over $4.6 million for 404 local nonprofits. Give to Lincoln Day aims to promote philanthropy in the city. By helping nonprofits raise funds, the daylong event helps them carry out their important work and supplements budgets that are challenged to meet current demands. It also allows nonprofits to tell their stories and attract new donors.
The Foundation encourages all Lincoln and Lancaster County residents to make a charitable donation to local nonprofits during this 24-hour day of giving. Gifts can be made online starting May 1 at GiveToLincoln.com.
