Lincoln Hills Foundation Awards Special $50,000 Grant to Salt Mine

Covers Required Purchase of New Vehicle

Contact: Eric Long eric@thesaltminelincoln.com

January 28, 2022 — The Lincoln Hills Foundation is pleased to announce that it has awarded a special grant in the amount of $50,000 to The Salt Mine. New California regulations made it necessary for The Salt Mine to retire their current vehicle and purchase one that is in compliance with the state laws that went into effect at the beginning of 2022.

The vehicle is a necessary part of the service provided to this community for both transport of food and supplies and for donation pickup. Though it is easy to find organizations that take donations the challenge is how to get the donations to the chosen organization. The Salt Mine is unique in that it provides door-to-door pickup, a tremendous service to the seniors of Lincoln Hills.

“This purchase was beyond expected expenses for the year and required a loan that came out of our operating budget for the year said, Eric Long, President. This grant from the Lincoln Hills Foundation is both a gift and a blessing. It allows us to pay for the new truck and use the donations we receive to help provide for those in need.”

“The Foundation is delighted to be able to support The Salt Mine with this special grant, said Denise Bowden, President. There are many seniors who rely on The Salt Mine for food boxes and personal supplies as well as the added benefit of transport of their donated items to the Thrift Store allowing them to supplement donations.”

The Lincoln Hills Foundation is a non-profit Community Benefit Corporation 501(c)(3). Tax I.D. #68-0488670.  100% of donations goes back into the community.

The Lincoln Hills Foundation – 20 Years Strong

In 2002, Del Webb Corporation provided $5000 in startup funds to establish the Lincoln Hills Foundation (LHF) to provide support for residents who experienced challenges as they aged in place. Thus began the collaboration between the SCLH Community Association and the Lincoln Hills Foundation that has continued for the past 20 years and will continue long into our future.

The purpose of the Foundation was to “receive donations and generate funds for the support of programs which meet the physical, educational and/or social needs of the senior residents of Sun City Lincoln Hills.” In 2007, the LHF board expanded the support of seniors to include “the surrounding community of Lincoln.” The LHF is a 501(c)3 public benefit nonprofit corporation, operated and managed 100% by volunteers. As a charity organization, donors know that every dollar raised as a donation is used to support its programs through grants.

When looking at how to serve a Community $5K doesn’t go far so the first order of business was to work on raising funds. In its early days flyers in the Compass magazine introduced the Foundation to residents followed by a variety of events and activities held by the Foundation and organized by a creative and hard working group of Directors. Many residents will remember the “Western Round-up” and the “Hats Off” events recognizing outstanding community members, and the “Dine Around Lincoln” coupon books.

The first large scale and successful direct mail campaigns to all residents began in 2012, bringing word of the work done by the Foundation to every resident’s front door. In 2016 The Big Day of Giving, affectionately referred to as BigDoG, a region wide one-day online fundraising campaign, was inaugurated, allowing the Foundation greater awareness and fund raising opportunities. Through the work of the Board members and the generosity of our donors the Foundation has held the top position in dollar donations in the category of small non-profits since participating in BigDog for the first time in 2017.      Read More…

A Visit to the Twelve Bridges Library

There are always places you want to go but never seem to get around to.  For me that was visiting the Twelve Bridges Library right here in Lincoln.  I had been there in pre-pandemic days for the “Meet the Author” evenings but it was after hours and way past time to be able to enter […]
