What is give to Lincoln Day?
Give to Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event that encourages everyone to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations through a single online giving platform on May 28. Give to Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. Every donation given makes a bigger impact because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $500,000 challenge match fund provided by Lincoln Community Foundation and the sponsors listed on their site.
Starting May 1st and ending May 28th, 2020, visit the page below to make your Give to Lincoln Day donation!

LCF will charge the same 2.9% fee as Firespring Foundation charges to online gifts. Fees received from offline gifts are directed to community grants for local nonprofits. All donations are final and cannot be refunded. Complete details may be found here.
Donor Advised Fund (DAF) – Donors with DAFs held at the Lincoln Community Foundation can give anytime now through May 28. LCF is communicating with these individuals via mail and email to encourage them to support G2LD nonprofits.
Individual Retirement Account (IRA) – NEW! Donors 70 ½ and older can use their IRA for G2LD. The deadline to initiate a gift from an IRA account is May 15 to ensure the funds arrive by May 28. The donor completes a form on the Toolkit and sends it to the LCF office, then initiates the gift with their IRA administrator. More information about these gifts is also at https://www.givetolincoln.com/about. If donors have specific questions, they can contact Chip DeBuse, VP for Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
