Community Involvement

“Life is short. If you just take it’s a lot shorter. If you really want to be responsible, you need to give something back.”

—Joe Hampton

The Hampton Family Foundation

In addition to our leadership team serving on a variety of organization's governing boards and directly providing financial support to organizations around Lincoln, Hampton Enterprises has contributed more than $1,000,000 to The Hampton Family Foundation.

Joe and Marge Hampton started the Foundation – a non-profit 501c(3) to enhance the opportunities for success for the youth and families in Lincoln – “A hand up, not a handout” as Joe was fond of saying.

While Hampton Enterprises provides financial support of the Foundation, the Foundation has its own board of directors and functions independent of Hampton Enterprises.  Below are the organizations that have regularly received financial support from Hampton Enterprises or the Hampton Family Foundation.
