Thanks to the foresight of past generous donors, Lincoln Community Foundation made grants in November of $1.5 million for 195 nonprofit organizations, 116 of which were local. These grants came from designated funds created by donors to support their favorite nonprofits and houses of worship. These endowed funds provide annual financial support to the organizations specified by the donors, helping the community and the nonprofits grow and thrive forever.
