Mission

Our Mission

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 over $4.7 million 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. Knowing which organization to support in our community can be a challenge. By supporting Lincoln-Way High School District 210 Foundation for Educational Excellence, you support the entire Lincoln-Way High School community. Students, classrooms & local families all benefit from your generosity.

Funds from the foundation provide:

  • State-of-the-art classroom technologies and robust educational software programs which enable our graduates to earn placement in top colleges.
  • Technologies that provide the tools necessary for our students with special needs to learn independently and gain confidence.
  • Benefits to all students including core class departments, as well as requests from fine arts, performing arts, industrial arts, and physical education to name a few.
  • Foundation Scholarships to 60 graduating seniors.
