Give to Lincoln Day 2019
Thank you! Give to Lincoln Day was a success in 2019 because of your support. This year’s funds raised will support our Pius X teachers and staff, and add a ‘digital trophy case’ (more information can be found on this page).
We’re working on confirming the matching funds and our final grand total, but so far we’re thrilled to announce that Pius X received over 300 donations and more than $125,000!
Thanks to the generous support of our community, two of our Catholic schools (St. Teresa and Pius X) were at the top of the leaderboard along with the Foodbank of Lincoln!
Give to Lincoln Day raised more than $5.5M for non-profits throughout Lincoln, breaking last year’s record by nearly a million dollars. Considering that Omaha’s giving day (Omaha Gives) raised $6.79M+ while Omaha’s metro area population (975K) is three times the size of Lincoln’s (331K), the generosity of our Lincoln community is truly inspiring!
What is a digital trophy case?
The Digital Trophy Case costs $14,000 (the rest of the funds raised will go toward supporting our teachers and staff). It’s an interactive board that would have all of the past yearbooks in a digital format, show the history of our school, digital profiles for our outstanding alums, distinguished stewards, and hall of fame inductees, tout the accomplishments of our current student-athletes, performing arts, AcaDeca, speech, and more.
