It’s always humbling when someone believes in your mission enough to truly invest in it. JA of Lincoln has been fortunate enough to have so many wonderful partners join us in our work, and we have another generous organization to add to that list.
The Allstate Foundation recently awarded $7,500 grants to 10 Lincoln non-profits, and JA of Lincoln is honored and grateful to be among them. All the grants were given to organizations with the goal of improving life in the Lincoln community by focusing on safe and vital communities; tolerance, inclusion, and diversity; and economic empowerment. All told, The Allstate Foundation has awarded $175,000 to Lincoln-area nonprofits over the last three years. Now that’s making a difference in your community!
We’ll be using our share of that generosity to bring the JA Economics for Success program to more than 1,000 middle school students. The program provides practical information about personal finance and the importance of identifying education and career goals based on a student’s skills, interests and values.
Thank you to The Allstate Foundation for helping us to build brighter futures for Lincoln’s students!
