You don’t have to wait until the next Lincoln Littles Giving Day to help!

When you donate to the Lincoln Littles Early Learning Fund, money will be granted to eligible early childhood providers who are on Step 2 or higher on Nebraska’s Step Up to Quality rating system and are committed to accepting lower-income families. A selection committee with members representing Lincoln Littles, Lincoln Community Foundation, and Nebraska Children and Families Foundation approve awards to providers for tuition assistance to ensure more of Lincoln’s infants, toddlers, and preschoolers facing the greatest odds may attend quality early childhood programs. Providers determine how many children they can serve and what tuition assistance is needed for these children.

Our last Lincoln Littles Giving Day, held on February 9, 2022, raised $670,000. Check back for the information on the 2023 Lincoln Littles Campaign.
