We are an independently operated organization offering outside-of-school academic enrichment and college readiness programs for under-resourced youth throughout the Louisville Metropolitan area.
Lincoln Foundation has empowered youth to overcome adversity through education since its founding by Berea College in 1910. Our mission is to provide educational enrichment programs that develop and support youth in overcoming social and economic barriers to achievement.
