Give online or in person at the Lincoln Community Foundation to support Crops!
Every donation given makes a bigger impact because nonprofits also get a proportional
share of a $350,000 challenge match fund provided by Lincoln Community Foundation
and their sponsors.
For example, if a nonprofit received 1% of the total donations raised during Give to Lincoln Day,
they will get an additional $3,500 from the Challenge Match Fund. To donate, go online here or bring a check in person to the Lincoln Community Foundation (215 Centennial Mall South). If you choose to go in person, please make the check payable to the Lincoln Community Foundation with Community Crops in the memo line. All in person donations must be received by 5 pm on May 18th.
Why should you give to Community Crops? Learn about our impact in the community by hearing from two of our community gardeners: Charlie and Saba.
By Mail: Send a check to Community Crops at 1551 S. 2nd Street, Lincoln NE 68502.
By Stock: Over the age of 70? You can donate directly to Community Crops from their IRA, and not have to include the donation as taxable income. This means neither you nor Crops has to pay any capital gains taxes on these funds. Community Crops has set up a brokerage account with RBC Wealth Management (Account #31752815) to facilitate these transfers.
Donations of Stuff: Browse our wishlist for items we need. Any garden tools in good condition will be happily received!
On Amazon: Donate every time you shop on Amazon, through Amazon Smile.
For the Future: Planned gifts are a crucial source of future funding that enables Community Crops to grow gardens long into the future. Simply including Community Crops (Tax ID #20-3174357) in your will or estate plan is easy to do.
Thank you for growing food where you live!
