YMCA Strong Kids Campaign

YMCA Strong Kids Campaign

Lincoln, Nebraska

The YMCA of Lincoln, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), provides youth activities that foster growth and learning under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. At YMCA Camp Kitaki, kids take part in a multitude of activities that nurture positive self-esteem, friendships, teamwork and self-discovery. While at YMCA Youth Sports, kids build confidence and good sportsmanship. Taking Swim Lessons, kids learn to be safe in the water while staying active and engaged. In the YMCA’s After School Programs and Summer Day Camps, kids stay safe while furthering their educational knowledge and exploring clubs that bring out their interests. Through the Open Doors Financial Assistance Program, we strive to make sure that financial limitations are not a barrier to having a Y membership or participating in Y programs. Our most at-risk youth receive these services free of charge. When you think of your YMCA, you’ll know it’s more than just a gym—it’s a cause rooted in community. With your generous support, we’ll continue to build up the areas we serve—reaching out to help our neighbors in need.

Randy Gibson Memorial Fund - Lincoln Parks Foundation

Lincoln, Nebraska

As a private 501 (c) 3 non profit organization we work in partnership with the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department. The Lincoln Parks Foundation enlists the help of individuals, corporate donors, and other charitable foundations in our efforts to sustain and improve our excellent parks system.

Funds donated in Randy’s memory will go towards a seating and trailhead area in the new South Haymarket Park & Plaza. This new downtown neighborhood park, southwest of 7th and “N” streets, will include playground and festival space, a dog park, play courts and other amenities. The park will also include a trail connection between “N” and “J” streets, providing a vital link between downtown (Haymarket Trail) and the trail system to the south (Jamaica North Trail). A new public plaza on the south end of Canopy Street will provide gathering spaces and include a proposed signature public artwork.
