Donations and Costs

  1. Class Contribution We have set the financial goal of "50 for 50!" which is $50,000 for our 50th class reunion. Thus, we are asking everyone to give as much as you can so that we not only reach but exceed the goal on this momentous ocassion.  The university has many gift programs and this is a great  time to consider a matching gift or bequest of assets (securities, life insurance, significant art, cash, real estate, charitable remainder trust, other).  Not only will such a gift help to swell our total but will be used to support the immediate needs of students, faculty and programs or fund an endowment that will serve future generations per your preference. The university is tallying contributions by class throughout the year.  If you send your contribution early to Lincoln,  it will be credited to our class.  Otherwise, bring your checkbook so you can present your contribution to the class gift at the Alumni Banquet on Friday night. (If you are unable to attend, please send the check to Treasurer Ed Hill, 3377 Meadow Brook Blvd., Cleveland Heights, OH 44118). Importantly, please indicate the amount of your pledged contribution to the Class Gift on the RSVP page so that we can guage our progress in reaching goal. 
  1. The Homecoming/Alumni Reunion Weekend Banquet on Friday, October 20, 2017 is estimated $75. Registration and payment will likely be required to Lincoln University no later than September 20, 2017. Check back for updates. Our class photo will be taken at the banquet after the presentation of our class gift. Click the Download-Links tab for details about registration and payments.
