Community Involvement

Lazlo Inc. Proudly Supports the Following Charities:

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)

JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. With the belief that together we can make a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes, Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill employees participate annually in the “Walk to Cure Diabetes” collecting donations on behalf of JDRF; the corporation also generously supports the Dream Gala.

League of Human Dignity

The League of Human Dignity is a Nebraska-based organization of people concerned about the rights and quality of life for people with disabilities and strives to ensure social, economic, and political equality for all. Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill is pleased to show our support of this important organization through participation in their benefit auctions and fundraising dinners.

Food Bank of Lincoln

The Food Bank of Lincoln gathers and redistributes surplus food to hungry people in 16 counties in southeast Nebraska. Because food is our passion, Lazlo’s is honored to participate in the Food Bank’s annual “Empty Bowls Luncheon” and “Dine Out to Help Out” program.


The mission of TeamMates is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential. The TeamMates Mentoring Program began in 1991 with the vision of University of Nebraska Head Football Coach Tom Osborne and his wife Nancy. TeamMates has more than 5,600 matches (roughly 5,600 mentors, 5,600 youth) in 112 communities across Nebraska, Iowa and California.

Historic Haymarket

Born in this energetic and posh section of downtown Lincoln, the Lincoln Haymarket Development Corporation is near and dear to our hearts. Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill and Empyrean Brewing Company frequently participate in revitalization projects and special events held in the Historic Haymarket district.


We are dedicated to supporting a variety of nonprofit organizations, schools, families and groups in our communities. As such, Lazlo's Brewery & Grill supports a number of additional causes and events not listed above.
