Thursday, May 17th is the first-ever Give to Lincoln Day. For one day only, charities and non-profits all across Lincoln will reach out to their supporters and benefactors, all in hopes of making their dollars work harder than ever before. That’s because the Lincoln Community Foundation has a pool of $200,000 that will be given out proportionally to the organizations who are shown the most support. On that day, when you give to your favorite non-profit, your donation will help them earn even more. And you don’t have to be able to give a lot – the non-profits with the greatest numbers of donors, regardless of how much they actually raise, will also win bonus grants up to $2,500.
Of course, this is all very exciting news to us here at JA of Lincoln! We know that we have some of the most generous, loyal, and motivated supporters out there, and we hope that you’ll help us claim a piece of the pie so that we can put it to work for our students. One of our goals is always to teach young people how to manage their money efficiently– and what could be more efficient than making a donation at a time when your money will go even further? We sincerely hope that you’ll mark May 17th on your calendars and consider a donation to JA of Lincoln! And while you’re at it, please tell a friend (or all your friends – share this on Facebook!) about Give to Lincoln Day!
