Eleven local non-profits received a very generous gift Tuesday, one which will help them support families in need.

The Lincoln Community Foundation announced a $2.6 million endowment which will provide the eleven non-profits with $10,000 each and every year.

The money was provided by family of the late Harley Bair.

Every organization chosen focuses on improving the lives of families, women, children and seniors - causes those who knew him say Bair cared about most.

Foodbank Director Scott Young says they'll be able to turn that $10,000 into $60,000 worth of food to help feed the hungry.

Bair also established a $50,000 scholarship through Lincoln Rotary East.

It's a gesture which caps off a lifetime of giving, and right in time for the holidays.

The other endowment recipients:

Child Advocacy Center
Friendship Home
Shriner's Hospital Minneapolis
Masonic Children's Home - Fremont
Salvation Army
ARC of Lincoln
Community Blood Bank
Lancaster Youth Softball Association
Eastmont Towers Foundation
People's City Mission
