Give to Lincoln Day is a Success!
On Thursday, May 16th, The Arc of Nebraska participated in Give to Lincoln Day, sponsored by the Lincoln Community Foundation. The day included 24 hours of unprecedented giving to nonprofits. It presented a chance to help make a real difference to Lincoln as a community and to The Arc of Nebraska as an organization.
The Arc of Nebraska raised $950.00 in online gifts and $330.00 for hand-delivered gifts that day. The event also included a matching fund of $200,000. Participating organizations received a proportionate match of the funds raised on their behalf. The Arc of Nebraska raised $141.88 in these matching funds. Our grand total was $1,421.88!
We greatly appreciate all who participated by donating funds and all who helped us to spread the word to encourage others to donate! The intent of the day is to offer a chance for additional funds to be raised. Thank you to all who made the day possible!
The Arc of Nebraska Family Support Survey Update
Thank you to everyone who participated in The Arc of Nebraska Family Support Survey. We had a wonderful return rate of over 450 respondents statewide. We also were quite impressed with the proportionate geographic representation of the respondents.
The next steps in this process include analyzing the data. This is complicated process, but one we are eagerly digging into! Please stay tuned for the results. We will publish them in a report that will be made available online. The report will be useful to individuals with disabilities, families, professionals, and policy makers so that positive family supports can result in the future.
Thank you again to all who are participating in this process!
