The LEXINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION hosts two annual events, the KEY Dinner & Auction and Give BIG Lexington.

The 21st annual Key Dinner & Auction to be held on April 30, 2022, is SOLD OUT. If you would like to add your name to the waiting list, please call the Foundation at 308-324-6704 or e-mail us at

Donations are being accepted for Key 2022 through the Lexington Community Foundation office. If you, or anyone you know is interested in participating in Key 2022 as a donor or sponsor, please contact a Board Member or the office.

The success of the Key is essential for the Foundation’s everyday business. The money raised provides funding for programs and grants throughout the year. For 20 years, LCF has been able to have both an immediate and visual impact in the area as a result of successful Key events.


The 12th annual Give BIG Lexington will be held on November 10, 2022. Give BIG Lexington is a 24-hour day of giving where donors can choose the causes that mean the most to them to donate directly to.

Because of Give BIG Lexington 2021, LCF was able to distribute a record breaking $838,000 to 140 participating causes in Lexington, Cozad, Elwood, Overton, and Sumner.
