NADP is once again proud to participate in the tenth annual Give to Lincoln Day event sponsored by the Lincoln Community Foundation to encourage local philanthropy. Online giving begins May 1, and continues through Give To Lincoln Day on May 25. 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. We are also proud to welcome dedicated donors who have pledged an outside match that will double or even triple the value of your gift!
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 into the future, 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 ongoing 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 once again 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 18 to the following address:
Lincoln Community Foundation
215 Centennial Mall South, Suite 100
Lincoln, NE 68508
Furthermore, if you are interested in giving via a Donor-Assisted Fund or an IRA distribution, or if you would like to pledge an outside match of your own to encourage others to give, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
