You can support summer learning on Give to Lincoln Day!

Give to Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event that encourages you to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations. Every donation makes a bigger impact on Give to Lincoln Day because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $400,000 match fund made possible by the Lincoln Community Foundation and generous sponsors.

Donations to participating charities like us are made online and will be updated in real time on the leader board at on May 31. Online donations may be made starting on May 1 using the button above. Gifts made between May 1 and May 31 will count toward the event, show on the leader board when the giving day begins on May 31, and be eligible for the match fund. The minimum donation for Give to Lincoln Day is $10. While there is no limit to how much donors can contribute, a maximum donation limit of $10,000 per nonprofit per household is eligible for matching funds.

Learn. Imagine. Provide.

Quality summer learning programs allow children to create and learn, to master new skills and build new relationships. While Bright Lights offers valuable hands-on learning experiences for children, support from you is needed to guarantee the continuation of Bright Lights' diverse, quality programs. With the support and dedication of the community, Bright Lights, a non-profit 501(c)(3), has become a vital part of summer learning opportunities, serving elementary and middle school students. Bright Lights is not a recipient of federal, state, or local tax revenues and is not financially supported by United Way or owned by any public or private schools.

Your continued dedication and Lincoln’s enthusiasm for Bright Lights keeps our summer program for children strong. We would appreciate your tax-deductible donation at any level.
