We both were raised in homes where our parents had stewardship roles in the Methodist Church and where tithing was practiced. During our life's journey together, we have tried to exemplify this advice for daily living from John Wesley, founder of Methodism: "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can."
We have been truly blessed by a benevolent God, and by having loving families, exceptional education, rewarding careers, good health and a safe, supportive community and state. We desire and are inspired to ensure that others may experience the same. The Lincoln Community Foundation is in a unique position to have a comprehensive grasp of our community's diverse needs and resources. We have chosen to support, through a Benefactor gift, the needs of children now and for "as long as ever we can."
