Championing the arts, connecting people, changing lives.
By investing in the Lincoln Arts Council, you will support your community's resilience through the arts. Our mission is Championing the arts, connecting people, changing lives. Your donation could mean a child from a limited-resource home experiences a transforming creative experience. Or, a local artist may work in a program helping community members deal with grief through art. There are four major areas in which your donation could help champion the arts - click the images below to learn more.
This group of generous donators become pillars at the Lincoln Arts Council, which add strength and support to the infrastructure that enables us to continue championing the arts, connecting people, changing lives.
