Lincoln-Way Foundation

The mission of the Foundation is to creatively generate financial support with which to enrich and enhance the opportunities and educational experiences of Lincoln-Way High School District 210 students.

Since its inception in 1994, volunteer Foundation directors have embraced this mission and our community has responded with unparalleled generosity. As a result, the Lincoln-Way High School District 210 Foundation has awarded $4,229,281 to benefit the educational programs of the District. The Foundation is committed to serving our community by funding programs and donating items that touch the lives of as many students as possible.
