All participating nonprofits will receive a proportional share of a record $650,000 match fund based upon the organization’s percentage of the total dollars raised, provided by LCF and sponsors including Presenting Sponsor, West Gate Bank.

“Give to Lincoln Day is about inspiring our community to give, and Lincoln gave in a big way,” said Alec Gorynski, LCF President/CEO. “This incredible display of generosity for our local nonprofits means more meals, more access, more help, and more hope. While setting a new record is to be applauded, it’s the many ways in which our community shows up and lends their support that matter.”
