Give to Lincoln Day is happening! From May 1 - May 26, your contributions will be matched and support Lincoln Literacy's unique and essential role of helping people from all over the world dream big and then gain the skills to make their dreams come true.


When immigrants, refugees, or longtime Nebraskans want to better their lot in life, they often look first to us. Completely without charge, Lincoln Literacy provides the English language, literacy, and life skills they need to transform their lives. Often that starts when our volunteer tutors lay the most basic foundation of English, but it rarely stops there. Our goal for every adult is fulfillment, through education, jobs, careers, family life, community engagement, and more. We also aim to help immigrant and refugee children be fully prepared and motivated to succeed in school.  Lincoln benefits from the culture, experience, and passion they bring. 

If you value the work Lincoln Literacy has done in the Lincoln community for the last 50 years making immigrants, refugees and homegrown learners feel at home in Lincoln and become contributing members to its economy, please give to Lincoln Literacy today!

Help us help others thrive.

We are a volunteer-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides free, life-changing educational services.
