Match Opportunities

Lincoln Community Foundation is pleased to provide match opportunities for nonprofits.

Endowed Agency Funds

When a nonprofit creates an endowed agency fund of $10,000 or more, LCF will match 10% of the gift*. This opportunity allows a nonprofit to invest a portion of their reserve fund, receive a 10% match and receive an annual distribution for your organization forever.

Endowed Designated Funds

When donors create an endowed designated fund of $10,000 or more for your nonprofit or house of worship*, LCF will match 10% of the gift.  This opportunity is a compelling incentive for donors to create a lasting gift that will support your organization forever.  Learn more here.

Here are some tools to help you promote the match to your donors:
