They asked for help. You answered.
Within Lincoln Public Schools, 47% of students live at or near the poverty line. So, when COVID-19 hit Lincoln in March 2020, many LPS families weren’t prepared for what followed. They asked for help and you answered the call. Because of you and donors like you, the Foundation for LPS COVID-19 Response Fund was able to quickly respond to the need.
- Three rounds of emergency funding
- 772 families helped
- $194K provided to assist with rent, utilities, food and childcare
While no longer offering funds specific to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation for LPS can still help. Check out our Get Assistance page for more information.
