As in previous years, The Handweavers Guild of Lincoln is participating in Give to Lincoln Day.

Give to Lincoln Day is a giving day event that encourages you to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations between May 1st and May 26th. Give to Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations.

Every donation makes a bigger impact on Give to Lincoln Day because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund made possible by LCF and generous sponsors.

Donations may be made through May 26, but we encourage our supporters to donate prior to that, it’s all counted together on May 26. To make a donation click here. Type “Handweavers” in the name search to donate to us. Thank you for giving generously to our Guild!
