For ten years, through Give BIG, individuals, businesses and organizations come together to invest in advancing the missions of our local nonprofits, expanding the impact of our programs, and moving our projects forward to completion. This fundraising event culminates with a 24-hour public campaign on November 10th.

Give Big Lexington is focused on providing ways for you to give back and bring our community together safely. While we will offer public drop off hours from 7:00 am to 7:00 p.m. for donations at our Give Big headquarters (Dawson County Annex building – 201 W. 7th St.), we are encouraging donors to consider these other alternatives:

  • give online at:
  • Mail or drop off your donation to Lexington Community Foundation, PO Box 422 / 607 N. Washington St., Lexington, NE 68850 (must be postmarked before November 10, 2021 to qualify for matching funds)
  • Call the Foundation office number 308.324.6704 for help with invoiced donations or if you are having trouble with credit card donations on the Give Big site

Lexington Community Foundation is excited to announce that once again this year other Dawson County area communities are participating in Give BIG! We are including these outlying areas in an effort to help other communities be part of something bigger. Give BIG is about inclusion and increasing awareness for the work non-profits do. Including partner campaigns is a great way to do this.

The communities participating in the giving day this year are Cozad, Elwood, Overton and Sumner. You can find their giving day pages by going to and clicking on their giving day icon on the GBL homepage. Each community has a list of their local organizations. Search their causes by scrolling through their leaderboards at the top of their homepage. Watch for more information about the locations of the giving day headquarters in each of these communities. We’re making it easy for donors to donate.
