About LSAF

In 1986, the Lincoln School Alumni Foundation was established primarily to work to enhance the educational opportunities of the youth of the Edwardsville School District 7. Over the past years, we have thrived and grown. We are proud of the assistance we have given other organizations in our community and to all segments of our student population.

Among our accomplishments are:

  • Provide funding for Edwardsville District  21 century technology
  • Awarding LSAF Grants and Jackson/Lucco Grants from $500-$1000
  • Provide funding for Summer Reading Program
  • Sponsor individual tutoring services

The Foundation is recognized as a 501(C)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service and is governed by a Board of Directors.



Each year we celebrate the recipients of our annual grant awards by hosting a luncheon or dinner in their honor. The awardees are presented with a certificate by all attendees by the LSAF Board members

I am excited and honored to serve as the president of the Lincoln School Alumni Foundation(LSAF). This foundation is made up of a dedicated group of people whose vision is to enhance the educational students in District 7.

We accomplish this by making donations directly to District 7, awarding college grants, partnering with other community groups to support families at Christmas and other events. Visit our website for more details on programs.

The funds that LSAF uses to provide these programs come from you, the community at large,  as we go through the upcoming year we will be reaching out to you. Come join us!! We have a Spring dance and Harry A. Penelton golf scramble or kindly make a donation, knowing that it will help the school-aged children in Edwardsville community.

I am looking forward to a memorable year. Join us and share in the blessings and joys that come with giving.
