Give to Lincoln Day 2018

On May 31, 2018 Lincoln TeamMates is participating in Give to Lincoln Day, the annual event that invites citizens to support local non-profits in the Lincoln and Lancaster County area. For every donation received through Give to Lincoln Day, Lincoln TeamMates will receive a proportional share of challenge match funds through the Lincoln Community Foundation. This means that even a modest donation receives an extra boost!

Throughout the month of May, all donations made to Lincoln TeamMates through our Give to Lincoln Portal below are eligible for up to $400,000 in available matching funds. Monthly contributors help the Program to keep going throughout the year, to become a monthly contributor go to our MightyCause page by clicking below.
