With the support of Lincoln Financial Foundation, Lincoln has given back to communities all over the country. Lincoln Financial Foundation awards grants to more than 300 nonprofits each year that empower and improve the lives of many. Contributing to strong, vital communities is not only intrinsic to our values, it’s our responsibility.  


Our programs:

In 2015, we awarded 138 education grants totaling $2.7 million. Applications for 2016 will be considered through July 15, 2016. Awards will be announced in September 2016.
