Support Local Seniors for Give to Lincoln Day

For those who are able, Give to Lincoln Day offers a unique opportunity to make an even bigger impact in the lives of Seniors and our local community. After an unprecedented year, they need you now more than ever.

Give to Lincoln Day, Tuesday, May 25, 2021, is a 24-hour, communitywide fundraising challenge to support nonprofit organizations like Tabitha. Donations made between May 1 and 25 receive a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund made possible by Lincoln Community Foundation and generous sponsors. The more gifts designated to Tabitha, the bigger percentage of the match goes to ensuring Seniors receive the Connections and Care they need and deserve.
