Philanthropy
Since it's inception, the NU Juggling Club has been dedicated to promoting the juggling arts amongst jugglers and laypersons alike.

Every odd calendar year Lincoln hosts the Flatland Juggling Festival, a free event that the general public is always encouraged to attend. Jugglers from all over the midwest gather there to share thier skills, join in fellowship, and teach juggling to any non-jugglers who show up.

The festival is funded by money raised each year by the Lincoln City Jugglers, the Omaha Juggling Clubs, and the NU Juggling Club. Many of these funds come from contributions organizations have made to the clubs in reciprocation for juggling performances, demonstrations or lectures.

The club recently recieved a grant from the Lincoln Arts Council to teach juggling to inner city youth. Through funding provided by the grant and contributions of many of the NU Jugglers own time, money, and resources, the club has been empowered to give away sets of beanbags on occassions when members feel the gift will be recieved by an interested person with promising interest or skills in juggling.

ATTENTION: The tag boards have been indefinitely removed due to advertising pop ups from the provider of these boards. A tag board may appear again when, time willing, in house code can be used to insure no advertising will plauge us. In the meantime...happy web fishing.
