The Lincoln High School Foundation focuses its efforts to raise private philanthropic funding for these key areas.
FUTURE VISION MENTORING PROGRAM – FUNDS NEEDED: $23,000
- The program’s mission is to inspire and guide students throughout their Lincoln tenure to set and achieve personal and academic goals.
- Two trained community volunteer mentors are paired with 10-12 student mentees to help stress the relevance of education and to prepare them for their post high school life.
- Participants build camaraderie exploring goal setting, study skills, time management, prioritization skills, take field trips, and much more to enrich the students’ educational experience throughout their 4-year high school career.
- In its 23-year history, over 2,200 students have greatly benefitted from this program.
CLASSROOM AND DEPARTMENT GRANTS – FUNDS NEEDED: $40,000
- Classroom grants positively impact the educational experience of ALL students.
- Critically needed funds help to expand student horizons, support innovative ways of teaching, and provide equipment for long lasting use and ongoing projects.
THINKIN’ LINCOLN – FUNDS NEEDED: $3,000
- An innovative and popular public policy contest, students are asked to submit a proposal for a $2,000 grant to help improve the school.
- The top three proposals win prize money and the winning proposal is funded by the Foundation.
EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR AWARDS – FUNDS NEEDED: $5,000
- These important awards aptly recognize two outstanding educators who demonstrate originality, innovation and dedication to their students, and help the school retain its prized educators.
