Ordinary People Making an Extraordinary Difference

Foundation Releases the Results of 2017 Give BIG Lexington Campaign

Lexington, NE (November 17, 2017) – Through the generosity of our donors, thousands of dollars will be re-invested in Lexington’s future.
No one person has the resources to find solutions to all the challenges faced by a diverse community. A significant impact can be made only when the financial and human resources of many individuals are combined. Lexington is paradigm of that fact.
On November 16th, Lexington Community Foundation hosted it’s seventh Give BIG Lexington campaign. It was an extraordinary day.
By participating in Give BIG Lexington, 77 organizations and programs heightened the awareness of their causes and inspired others to support their efforts. Give BIG Lexington may only last for 24 hours, but it’s more than just one day. It’s a multi-week campaign that leads up to the big day. The event ushers in the charitable spirit of the holiday season and is the biggest giving day of the year for this area. Since it began in 2011, Give Big has distributed $3.1 million. The event makes an extraordinary difference for our community.
Thanks for giving! You helped us take small steps toward making a big difference.
The Foundation recognizes the important role all of the volunteers have in the success of our giving day. Thanks is given to LCF Event Sponsors, Give Big Lexington media sponsors, the local businesses that promoted Give Big on their marquees, and the businesses/organizations that shared their employees to help at the office. We are very appreciative of your support our efforts!
