The 12th annual Give to Lincoln Day on May 24th raised more than $7.5 million for 456 local nonprofits. The funds are designated to help support charitable organizations that serve Lincoln and Lancaster County. All participating nonprofits will receive a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund based upon the organization’s percentage of the total dollars raised, provided by LCF and sponsors including Presenting Sponsor, West Gate Bank.
“Year after year, Give to Lincoln Day offers us the chance to give back to the organizations that are near and dear to us,” said Alec Gorynski, LCF president. “Organizations that provide art and cultural experiences, teach and guide our youth, support those who are experiencing hard times, care for our four-legged friends and much more.”
Nearly 25,000 donations were received for the 12th annual Give to Lincoln Day. The event has raised more than $57 million for local nonprofits in its 12-year history.
“The collective impact of 25,000 individual acts of generosity, along with the $500,000 matching fund, will empower the missions and fuel the critical work of 456 nonprofits for the year ahead,” said Gorynski. “We are thrilled with this year’s successful results that demonstrate the awesome power of philanthropy. When neighbors come together to on Give to Lincoln Day, we give everyone in our community the opportunity to thrive.”
