Leave your mark
on Lincoln

You can give 110% with a match from Lincoln Community Foundation.

When you create or contribute to an endowment for your philanthropic passion, or open a new donor advised fund, Lincoln Community Foundation will provide a 10% match on your donation.

Endowments create permanent support.

You may give a gift of any size to an existing active endowment held at Lincoln Community Foundation and that gift will receive a 10% match.  

With a minimum gift of $10,000, you may create a new endowed fund. Funds of the following types receive the 10% match:*

* The maximum match to any fund will be $10,000. Also, any group of funds benefiting the same organization may receive a maximum of $10,000 in matching funds.

Donor Advised Funds

There has never been a better time to open a donor advised fund (DAF) at the Lincoln Community Foundation. Thanks to a gift from Bill and Marilyn Cintani, new DAFs will receive a 10% match.

  • There is no minimum amount needed to open a donor advised fund.
  • A fund will be considered new if no gifts have been received previously for any donor advised fund established by a member of the donor’s household.
  • A new DAF may receive a maximum of $1,000 in matching funds.

Matches available through December 2019 or until match funds have been distributed.
