Give to Lincoln Day 2019
May 30, 2019
When Lincoln Comes Together, BIG Things Happen
For 24 hours, on Give to Lincoln Day, every donation given to local nonprofits is made bigger by matching funds. It is one special day when everyone in Lincoln is asked to make a donation showing their support for the organizations that contribute so much to our great city.
Gifts Given on May 30 Make a BIG Impact
Every donation given makes a bigger impact because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $400,000 challenge match fund provided by Lincoln Community Foundation and their sponsors. For example, if a nonprofit received 1% of the total donations raised during Give to Lincoln Day, they will get an additional $4,000 from the challenge match fund.
Go to GiveToLincoln.com and Give BIG On May 30, gifts can be made to participating nonprofits online at GiveToLincoln.com from Midnight to 11:59 p.m., or in person at one of our donation stations (find one at GiveToLincoln.com/about). Minimum donation is $10.
Donations can be given online in advance, starting May 1. Gifts made between May 1 and May 30 will be counted in the dollars raised on Give to Lincoln Day and qualify for matching funds. Go to the website to see dollars raised in real time.
