THE NEWMAN CENTER IS AN OFFICIAL PARTICIPANT IN GIVE TO LINCOLN DAY!

Again this year, the Newman Center is participating in the Lincoln-wide non-profit fundraising event on May 31, 2018! Give a donation of any amount on this day, and your donation will be increased by a pool of matching gift funds through the Lincoln Community Foundation. In addition, some friends of the Newman Center have committed to an internal match! In other words, your online or in-person donations go so much further on May 31! 

WHAT IS GIVE TO LINCOLN DAY? 

Give to Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event that encourages everyone to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations through a single online giving platform on May 31. Give to Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. Every donation given makes a bigger impact because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $400,000 challenge match fund provided by Lincoln Community Foundation and the sponsors listed on their site.

Starting May 1st, 2018, and ending May 31st, 2018, visit the page below to make your Give to Lincoln Day donation!
