Give to Lincoln Day

May 25, 2021

Intermission is over! Your seat is waiting.

When you support the Lied on Give to Lincoln Day, you’re part of the return of inspiration, education, and entertainment. Your support puts artists back in classrooms, on stage, and in communities across the state. Your support brings local elementary students back to the Lied to experience their first taste of live performance. Your support raises the curtain again on the best of music, theater, dance, and more, right here in Lincoln.   

Your support of the Lied Center on Give to Lincoln Day represents your belief in the power of the arts to bring us together. Intermission is over at the Lied Center! Your seat is waiting.

1. Give online between May 1 – May 25 using a credit/debit card at

Help us fill the seats! 

You are invited to participate in the 2021 Friends of Lied virtual fundraiser, Support Our Stages. Have some fun and support the arts without renting a tux or even leaving your home! For each $100 donation, you will have the opportunity to build one paper patron. Create a cutout for each member of your family, gift one to a friend, or honor a loved one. With thousands of possible combinations, you will have a ball designing your own custom cutouts! See our examples below. Cutouts purchased by April 20 will be placed in the theatre and showcased on camera during the Lied Center’s Broadway Announcement event in May. Support Our Stages participants will receive an exclusive invitation to attend this virtual event.

Click HERE to order cutouts.

Donations to the Support Our Stages campaign are 100% tax deductible.
