  • If you think GoFundMe changed the fundraising game forever when they launched their online crowdfunding platform in 2010, think again. Lincoln Public Schools has been using their remarkably similar Fund a Need program since 2003, providing classrooms with everything from field trips, to mariachi ensembles, to pet bearded dragons.

  • Homelessness is most visible when people are on the street, out in the open. People who have no shelter at all are extremely vulnerable, but homelessness has other faces too. It can have a particularly different impact for students working to get their education.

  • Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, is pleased to announce that its 2018 Partner for Life Award has been awarded to Lincoln Public Schools in Lincoln, Nebraska.



Student Homeless Fund

With just over 46% of LPS students living at or below the poverty line, unexpected expenses can be devastating. Many families have to make hard choices about basic needs—housing, clothing, food, warmth—choices that affect students’ ability to focus and be successful.

Our Homeless Student Funds are almost gone, and we need generous donors like you to help.


2Gen Family Literacy

2Gen Family Literacy helps students and parents of all cultures learn important English language literacy skills. In addition to language skills, parents also learn cultural proficiency, life skills, job skills, parenting skills and many other critical skills that help families honor their cultural heritage while adapting to life in Nebraska.

As Lincoln's refugee population grows, so grows the need to support 2Gen.



Activities Assistance Fund

Most families can afford the equipment needed for their student to be a part of a team. But for some, these expenses can be a barrier to participation. The benefits of athletics extend far beyond simple physical activity. Persistence, cooperation, patience, focus: these are all skills learned through participation in organized sports.

Give every student the opportunity to participate by donating today.



Fund A Need

Take learning beyond the classroom and awaken students' curiosity by donating to these requests for special funding. Every dollar helps!
