Welcome

Thank you to all who attended Lincoln Foundation’s Open House.  It was a wonderful event and we were overwhelmed with our many friends and supporters through the years who stopped by to see our new space.  Lincoln Foundation wishes to extend special thanks to Gill Holland and Metro Bank for covering the cost of refreshments. We also want to express deep appreciation to Vance Blade Enterprises for his landscaping services in preparation for the festivities.


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.
