Lincoln School Receives $1.5M Gift for Financial Aid

Our Quaker roots have long informed an institutional philosophy of equity and inclusion, a mission furthered a generous endowed gift of $1.5 million for financial aid. This gift, the single largest dedicated to scholarship in the school’s 134-year history, was given by an anonymous donor to ensure that girls, regardless of their financial situation, can take advantage of the benefits of a Lincoln School education. This contribution deepens Lincoln’s ongoing commitment to need-based financial aid, which also extends to our global programs to India and Cuba.

This major gift adds to the recent philanthropic momentum in support of our core mission. The impact of this investment to girls’ education is best summed up by the words of a current Lincoln scholarship student:

“I am in a diverse environment that enables me to better my community. In these crucial years of growth, I have a solid background to fall back on when I stumble, and enough knowledge to set me free. I will breach the boundaries keeping people apart; I will reach across them and spread this wonderful gift of passionate learning with others.”

Together we celebrate the extraordinary opportunities this gift will bring to the Lincoln community!
