Great Plains
Support Our Work

If you enjoyed a lecture, an art exhibition, the Great Plains conference, a First Friday event, a Discover the Great Plains book, the Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence, or another activity this year, then please consider making a financial contribution to help us continue our programming. The Center for Great Plains Studies and the Great Plains Art Museum rely on outside support to do some of our most popular and engaging activities. Your contribution will help us continue and do more of the programming you enjoy.

If you'd like to support our programming, there are several ways to do so.

During the Month of May, visit our Give to Lincoln Day page. Give to Lincoln Day is a giving day event that encourages you to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations between May 1 and May 28. Give to Lincoln Day is coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation, in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. Every donation makes a bigger impact on Give to Lincoln Day because nonprofits also get a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund made possible by LCF and generous sponsors.
