Each year on a single day in May, we get a vibrant picture of exactly what a generous community Lincoln really is. The 2017 Give to Lincoln Day was a record-breaker, resulting in the donation of nearly $3.7 million dollars to Lincoln non-profits. It was also a big day for JA of Lincoln! We’re so excited to share that, all told, more than $21,000 dollars was donated to benefit our students. That put us 52nd out of well over 350 deserving charities, which is something we’re pretty proud of. That’s $21,000 that will put our message of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and business ethics in more classrooms than ever before. $21,000 that will give our students the tools to succeed. $21,000 to build ever-more innovative programs to prepare them for future careers.
We know how fortunate we are to live in such a caring community, but Give to Lincoln Day really reminds us just how special Lincoln is. The fact that thousands of people came together to make such a massive impact is something that deserves notice. All we can say is THANK YOU! Thank you for caring about JA of Lincoln enough to share your resources. Thank you for investing in our students and our community. Thank you for helping us to build a brighter future, one classroom at a time!
