Give to Lincoln Day is underway! Secure donations are now being accepted at the Give to Lincoln site managed by the Lincoln Community Foundation on behalf of many wonderful Lincoln nonprofits, including Lincoln TeamMates.
A community partner has offered to match up to $25,000 in gifts from you to Lincoln TeamMates on Give to Lincoln Day. The matching gift for Lincoln TeamMates on Give to Lincoln Day will DOUBLE your gift, turning a gift of $30 to $60, a gift of $150 to $300. Additionally, we will receive a proportional share of $500K in challenge match funds provided by Lincoln businesses.
Innovative approaches to welcoming more mentors to pair with our many waiting students remains our highest priority. We served more than 1,200 TeamMates matches this year in public and parochial schools and hope to continue to grow that number in the year to come.
To help, you can securely give now through May 26 at Give to Lincoln.
