Gifts to the Endowment

Lincoln School is grateful to those donors who have established permanent endowment funds to strengthen the School's financial foundation. Gifts to the Endowment, which now stands at more than $10 million, support a fund that is held in perpetuity. Gifts to the endowment are invested through the Rhode Island Foundation, generating income to support scholarships, faculty development, program and general operations.

Many donors have established a permanent legacy at Lincoln in honor of their experience or to recognize a beloved teacher, child, parent or friend. To establish a new fund, a minimum donation of $50,000 is required. Examples of endowment include:

  • named scholarship funds
  • faculty development funds
  • athletic funds
  • performing arts funds
  • library funds
  • general operations funds

Established endowments are listed below. Donors are invited to make gifts of any amount to augment these endowments. Please contact Kate E. S. Wishart at
