Our Hometown's Generosity

by Jennifer Wemhoff, The Groundwater Foundation

Tomorrow, Thursday, May 26, is a big day in The Groundwater Foundation's hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. It's Give to Lincoln Day, and for 24 hours, every donation given to local nonprofits, including The Groundwater Foundation, is made bigger by matching funds. It is one special day when everyone in Lincoln is asked to make a donation showing their support for the organizations that contribute so much to our great city. Every donation given makes a bigger impact because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $300,000 challenge match fund provided by Lincoln Community Foundation and their sponsors. Donor drawings will also occur hourly on May 26 -  an online donor will be selected at random and $300 will be added to their nonprofit gift. 

Lincoln is our home. It always has been. We're connected to our community. When faucets turn on in Lincoln, it's groundwater that comes out. Groundwater is the water we drink and the water that grows our food, and it's up to all of us to protect this precious resource.
Please consider making a gift to The Groundwater Foundation on Give to Lincoln Day and help people understand the importance of the water that nourishes our lives and communities - groundwater. For over 30 years, The Groundwater Foundation has empowered youth, adults, and communities to act locally and have a global impact.

You don't have to live in Lincoln to be part of this special day of giving! Use the online donation platform to give to The Groundwater Foundation as part of Give to Lincoln Day from anywhere.
