Give To Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event that encourages everyone to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations through a single online giving platform on May 18th. Give To Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations.

Every donation makes a bigger impact on Give To Lincoln Day because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $350,000 match fund.

The purpose of Give To Lincoln Day is to promote philanthropy in Lincoln and Lancaster County. There are three primary goals:

  1. Introduce new donors to our nonprofit organizations.
  2. Help Lincoln nonprofit organizations tell their stories and educate Lincoln about the positive impact they have on our lives.
  3. Shine a community spotlight on this day of charitable giving to raise a substantial amount of new money to assist the local nonprofit network.
