To provide an equitable support structure for the Lincoln High School community through fundraising, volunteering and partnership initiatives.


To provide resources to make Lincoln one of the nation’s premier high schools, creating a lifelong love of learning, supporting physical and intellectual growth, while strengthening our broader community connections.

What we do

Friends of Lincoln strives to ensure every student has equitable access to the full Cardinal experience. We help fund teacher positions and support students, from meeting basic human needs to providing technology and covering fees for those who would otherwise not be able to participate. We also build community connections and caring through a broad range of volunteer efforts.

What we fund

Funds raised by FoL support:

  • Supplemental staffing
  • Club and PIL sport teams
  • Classroom requests from teachers
  • Non-athletic club needs
  • Community outreach

How to help

Volunteers are part of what makes Lincoln High School an amazing place to be. Want to join a Friends of Lincoln committee or use your talents to help Lincoln students achieve success?
