Lincoln Foundation has empowered disadvantaged youth to overcome adversity through education since its inception by Berea College over 100 years ago. Our primary purpose is to holistically develop students in a culture that stresses academic achievement and graduation from college. It is our belief that students can break the cycle of poverty in their families through higher education. Lincoln Foundation annually serves approximately 600 students from two years of age through college with its year-round, nontraditional educational enrichment programs.
