Lincoln’s 12th annual giving day is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24. Coordinated by the Lincoln Community Foundation (LCF, lcf.org), Give to Lincoln Day is an online event encouraging donations to support the local nonprofits and causes people care about. More than 450 local charities have registered for this year’s event. Every participating nonprofit organization will receive a proportional share of the $500,000 match fund, based upon its percentage of total dollars raised, thanks to many generous sponsors including Presenting Sponsor, West Gate Bank.
Last year’s event raised $8 million for local nonprofits. The event has raised $50 million in its 11-year history.
Donors may search nonprofits and give online at GiveToLincoln.com. Donations must be made before 11:59 p.m. on May 24 to count toward the giving day and the match fund. The minimum donation is $10 per charity. On May 24 donation totals can be viewed throughout the day at GiveToLincoln.com.
