LEXINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION TO HOST
SEVENTH ANNUAL GIVE BIG LEXINGTON
We are preparing for the seventh annual Give BIG Lexington campaign scheduled for Thursday, November 16th. This one-day giving event has created an unprecedented impact for this area.
The Give BIG Lexington initiative began in 2011 and was the first giving day hosted in Nebraska. Over the past 6 years, more than $2.65 million has been distributed in the Lexington area through Give BIG Lexington, and more than 101 area organizations have benefitted from over 11,000 donations.
Give BIG Lexington is part of a larger collective giving strategy to invest in the future of our community. The decision by the Lexington Community Foundation board of directors to continue to offer this initiative is guided by a profound commitment to support initiatives that help our community to thrive.
Please check back often as we continue to release new information leading up to Give BIG Lexington 2017! And watch for the new Give BIG Lexington website to be live on September 15th!!
