For over 40 years, Junior Achievement of Lincoln has been supported by local businesses, foundations, community organizations and individuals. Our programs are always provided at no cost to schools, so we depend on the generosity of our business partners in the community to continue inspiring Lincoln’s future leaders. Junior Achievement is entirely supported by voluntary private sector donations. No United Way or tax monies are involved.
JA’s business partners understand that by supporting the work of Junior Achievement in Lincoln’s classrooms, they’re really investing in their own futures. Today’s students are tomorrow’s consumers, workers, managers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, and political leaders– so equipping them with financial literacy, business ethics, and motivation to succeed will have a lasting positive impact on our community.
Junior Achievement is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, to which contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Junior Achievement meets all Standards in Philanthropy, as detailed by the National Charities Information Bureau.
In addition to monetary contributions, Junior Achievement also looks to our corporate partners for many of the dynamic volunteers that bring our curriculum to life in the classroom. Junior Achievement provides an effective, fun, rewarding and well-organized group volunteer activity for your company, co-workers or department. We make it easy to involve your company, enable employees to become role models while providing proven and effective lessons about the economics of life, and feel the rewards of community involvement.
