How it Worked

On November 15th, the Lexington Nebraska community came together for 24 hours of giving.

All donations were matched with a proportional share of a $100,000 challenge match pool of funds. The challenge fund was provided by the Lexington Community Foundation.

In addition, the top three organizations that had the greatest number of online donors making gifts on November 15th received bonus grants of $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000 respectively.
