Lincoln Forever Funds are broad unrestricted funds that provide grants and leadership gifts to nonprofits in the community. These funds are valuable and flexible resources for responding to future needs and opportunities. As needs change in the community throughout the years, Lincoln Forever Funds provide the visionary gifts that improve our city, and ensure a viable safety net.
Donor gifts of $10,000 or more may establish a named Lincoln Forever Fund that will provide a lasting legacy.
For a limited time, you can make a new permanent gift of $10,000 or more to a named Lincoln Forever Fund and we will provide a 10% match.
Our Grantmaking Committee reviews all applications for grants from our Lincoln Forever Funds and makes recommendations to our Board of Directors for final decisions.
Memorial and Honorarium Gifts support Lincoln Forever Funds, providing for the ever changing needs and opportunities in our community.
