2014 Charity Award Recipient

Our becoming benefactors of the Lincoln Community Foundation was a natural next step for us. Jim's father, Joe W. Seacrest, shared in the creative vision that resulted in the Lincoln Community Foundation.  Subsequently, our family has been a founder or supporter of community foundations across the state, including Scottsbluff, Sidney, North Platte and Lexington.  We personally have seen the impact community foundations have because of the diverse nature of the opportunities they can give to donors to fulfill their dreams.  We have big dreams for Lincoln that will be realized by the shared commitment of all investors in the Lincoln Community Foundation.
