Lincoln-Way Foundation

2018 is off to a great start!

Thanks to everyone who attended & made the 2017 Foundation Dinner Gala a huge success. Thank you to the donors, volunteers, Foundation Partners & all the winning bidders present & those online.

The impact donation from the 2017 Dinner Gala raised $5670 for the Transition program to acquire much needed specialized furniture. The Foundation donated an additional $100,000 to the District from the combined proceeds of all fundraising events in December, 2017. These funds allowed the school to acquire over 100 Lenovo teaching devices & charging carts to move the schools one step closer to a digital, blended learning experience for all LW students in 2018. The Foundation Board had 100% Board participation in their monetary gift of $2800, evidencing the Directors “walk the talk.” We appreciate the combined team effort of many in helping us creatively generate financial support to enrich educational opportunities/experiences at all Lincoln-Way High Schools. Also, the 2017 tax-deductible donation of each $125 Dinner Gala reservation is $64, so please consult your tax advisor for additional details.
