Ignite Lincoln will award up to $7,000 to local nonprofits that ignite passion in our community.
How to Apply
Applying is simple: Anyone can nominate a nonprofit by submitting the form below. Submissions must be received before midnight on June 1, 2020. Five nonprofit finalists will be chosen to participate in the online Ignite Lincoln 12 event.
Nonprofits will be asked to produce social media content in partnership with Ignite Lincoln to help drive awareness about their organization and ask for free-will donations via Ignite Lincoln 12's donation page. Thanks to Ignite Lincoln 12's presenting sponsor, Firespring, nonprofits will receive part of a $7,000 match fund.
In addition to free-will donations, nonprofits will be awarded $3,000; $1,750; $1,000; $750; and $500. The amount awarded to each nonprofit will be determined by the final total of the free-will donations they received during the month of August 2020 via Ignite Lincoln 12's donation page. The organization that comes out on top receives the top award of $3,000!
The nonprofits will be awarded live on Ignite Lincoln 12's social media channels on Monday, August 31 at 7 p.m.
