NADP is once again proud to participate in this annual event sponsored by the Lincoln Community Foundation to encourage local philanthropy. Online giving begins today, May 1, and continues through Give To Lincoln Day on May 28. This is the best time of the year to give, because every gift adds to NADP's share of this year's record-high $500,000 challenge match fund!
As you know, the ninth annual Give To Lincoln Day arrives under a set of entirely unprecedented challenges - yet it is exactly when we face the greatest challenges that we see the best of our community emerge. Nebraskans of all walks of life have an outstanding opportunity to invest in and partner with the growing movement to end the broken death penalty in our state once and for all! Are you eager to help? Your gift at this critical time will help propel the movement forward in the coming months, and with your support NADP will continue working hard to rebuild a statewide operation and meet a series of ambitious goals:
Identifying new repeal champions in the State Legislature
Growing outreach and education efforts for elected representatives and prosecutors
Gathering support for legislation that increases transparency and accountability surrounding the administration of the death penalty
Building organizing infrastructure, including full-time staff
Engaging in robust social media campaigns
Investing in public outreach: tabling, book clubs, vigils, movie screenings, discussion panels, etc.
Producing new thought-provoking materials to challenge the death penalty as bad public policy
Please help build momentum with a gift of $25, $50, or $100, or whatever you can contribute towards the fight to end the death penalty in Nebraska!
Here are three easy ways to help spread the word:
Email the link to 10 friends and invite them to join you in contributing.
Share the link on Facebook, and tag your friends to encourage others to do the same.
Unfortunately, given the nature of the coronavirus pandemic, and in observance of social distancing measures meant to minimize infection rates, this year's event will take place entirely online. This means the Give To Lincoln Day fair at Tower Square event has been cancelled, and offline donations may only be made via mail. If you prefer offline giving, make your check out to Lincoln Community Foundation and be sure to write NADP in the memo line (or include a separate list if you wish to split your gift among multiple nonprofits). Checks must be postmarked no later than May 23 to the following address:
Lincoln Community Foundation
