What is The Lincoln High School Foundation?

Today’s article is about a Foundation that helps our school a lot with financial support. I have asked a few questions to Paul Kanter, one of the directors in Lincoln High School Foundation.

Paul Kanter describes the Foundation as an independent, non profit organization. The Lincoln Foundation is dedicated in its financial support of our school. “The Foundation was founded in 1991” said Paul “Its mission is to support academic and enrichment programs that benefit and enable all students to succeed.” For example, the Future Vision Mentoring Program, his mission is to support students throughout their Lincoln tenure. One of their record programs support was the Dance Room that costed $50,000. 

“The Foundation seeks private philanthropic support for school needs that would otherwise go unaddressed due to a lack of funding from traditional public school funding sources.” said Paul. 

The Foundation has also a lot of volunteers: parents, alumni, staff, and other interested community leaders. All those volunteers formed the Board of Directors. 

Here’s one of their upcoming events: The Lincoln High School Foundation Fall Wine Tasting Fundraiser, November 21 at 5pm.
