Why These Three Areas?

We all have similar goals in life: a good education, meaningful careers, safety and security, raising healthy families. But for some of our family, friends and neighbors these goals are harder to reach. We’ve chosen these three areas because they are building blocks. If needs are met in all three areas, then opportunities are greatest for a successful, stable life. We’ve done our research, and we know that these focuses and the agencies we’ve chosen to fund will allow us to have a greater impact on the future of Lincoln and Lancaster County.
