Give To Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations.

  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.
