Our Projects

Need Ideas for Specific Projects that You Can Support?

You have decided to support Lincoln College. You understand the importance of unrestricted giving to the LINCOLN Fund. Perhaps you want your dollars targeted to a specific project but aren’t sure what you can afford and what will do the most good.

We understand.

We’ve compiled a list of specific priorities that are geared to every interest. We’ve listed some examples below and, where appropriate, we’ve included financial goals. If you need additional guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out, we’ll be glad to help you match your objectives with an appropriate project.

Many of our projects come with naming opportunities for those wishing to have a permanent legacy on campus, wanting to pay tribute to family, friends or mentors, or have a corporate sponsorship in mind.

Whether it is one of these projects or one designed specifically for your priorities, you can be sure of one thing: Every dollar you contribute will be used to achieve the goal you select.

“I would not be motivated to give to Lincoln College if it had not been for what they have given me,” says Rich Nicholls.  “It was just something intangible, in that you can’t see it or touch it, but you just know it’s there. Those of us who have experienced it know that, when we look back at our time at Lincoln College, something very positive happened for us in our lives there.

Those positive experiences for students across generations is what Lincoln College hopes to achieve through special projects, like the ones listed here.
By incorporating the Lincoln Heritage Museum and Student Life improvements, the EMPOWER Campaign can ensure the graduates of tomorrow experience the positive and special atmosphere of Lincoln College.
