The Lincoln Fund in Action

It is officially summer at Lincoln School! And with the warm weather and vibrant joy of our summer camps, comes the final push for the 2018-19 Lincoln Fund. The tradition of giving has always been strong at Lincoln, creating a community where everyone has a voice and can make a difference, and the generosity of all of our supporters contributes to the life-changing power of all-girls education. But do you ever wonder exactly what the money raised through the Lincoln Fund supports?

It's a big question, with many important answers, but as we reflect on the end of another ground-breaking year on Butler Avenue, we are excited to highlight a few hallmarks of a Lincoln education that are made possible by the Lincoln Fund.

  • A forward-thinking curriculum, which includes our Independent Studies program. This year, 15 students participated in this program, delving deeply into subjects about which they are passionate, such as Food Studies and Geopolitics, Data Science: Python, Play Directing, Television and Representation of Women, and Robotics Engineering.
  • More than 10 educational partnerships that provide real-world educational experiences, such as Save the Bay. Each year, our Lower School students in Kindergarten–Grade 5 participate in various hands-on learning programs through Save the Bay under the guidance of Lower School STEAM teacher Anna Painter. Her work and the partnership’s success were highlighted this spring when she received Save the Bay’s Educator of the Year award.
  • Programming that transforms our campus into a cutting-edge think tank, like the Middle School’s Innovation Nation. In April, under the guidance of Lincoln alumna and Bryant University Associate Professor of Applied Psychology Allison Gelfuso Butler ’96 and her team of eight students, Lincoln’s Middle School morphed into a design-thinking hot spot, where groups of students dove into the process, tackled real-life problems, and worked together to come up with unique solutions.
  • An athletic program that emphasizes exceptional performance while educating the whole student-athlete, with programs such as the annual Athletic Recruiting Informational Evening. The college admissions process is nuanced, but for those with the goal of becoming collegiate student-athletes, there are many additional questions, decisions, and factors to consider. In an attempt to help students in our community develop a better understanding of the process, the Athletic Department and the College Counseling Office teamed up to provide guidance from local experts.
  • Hope for the future. Each June, when we graduate another class of spirited, passionate, and talented students, all of whom have been shaped by their Lincoln education, the potential for the future of our community, our country, and the world gets a little bit brighter.
