Foundation Building and GardenFoundation Garden Event

The Lincoln Community Foundation Building serves as headquarters for a variety of community organizations, including the Lincoln Community Foundation, which owns and manages the building. In 1964, Woods Charitable Fund made a gift of $1.35 million to purchase the land and erect our building at 15th and N Streets. It was known as the Lincoln Center for Community Services, and LCF was asked to serve as owner with the understanding that space be leased to nonprofit organizations.

In addition to office space, the building has conference rooms available free of charge to any community nonprofit organization. Questions about the Lincoln Community Foundation Building should be directed to the Foundation office at (402) 474-2345 or

Lincoln Foundation Garden

The Lincoln Foundation Garden, situated immediately to the west of the Lincoln Community Foundation Building (215 Centennial Mall South), was created by the Lincoln Community Foundation as a gift to the community. It is open to the public as a mid-city oasis for relaxation, contemplation, and brown-bag lunching.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (unless the garden is temporarily closed for a special event or inclement weather). Free wi-fi is available.

The Foundation Garden Summer Performance Series runs every Wednesday from May through August. Performances by local musicians entertain lunch-hour crowds from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.  View the 2016 performance schedule.
