Leave a Legacy

"Lincoln University is the only institution founded by soldiers of the 62nd and 65th United States Colored Infantry.  Many of those soldiers were ex-slaves that learned to read and write at classes around campfires on the battlefield."

Today, you have the opportunity to build upon our proud past toward a progressive future. Consider joining distinguished alumni, friends, corporations and private foundations that support innovation at Lincoln University. These vital partnerships foster student success through named scholarships, faculty and program development and capital improvements.
