Phenomenal class giving!  At the Alumni Banquet, you delivered more checks on behalf of the class and they enabled us to give over $41,000 to Lincoln University.  We will provide the exact amount and number of donors as soon as possible.  Our class was the highest donor for the evening.  But don't stop!!! We have until June 30, 2018 (end of fiscal year) to give additional amounts that will count toward the LU'68 Class gift, as well as your individual gift total to the university.

We need just $59,000 more to make our class giving goal. If you haven't given, now is the time! See our gift offer below.  For a donation of $250.00 we will send our official reunion hat and bag to you!  If you have given, please consider an additional legacy gift in your name or that of a beloved family member that will continue in perpetuity for the benefit of student scholarships. Click on the "Donate Class Gift" tab on the left or call Dr. Zanjani, VP of Institutional Advancement,  484-365-7440, for more information and assistance.

Be sure to take advantage of any matching gifts from your employer or initiate contact with a foundation or corporation for support. Call Dr. Zanjani if you prefer the university to make the contact for you. 

Much love and appreciation for all gifts, large and small, of your time, talent and treasure on behalf of our Alma Mater!

In just a few months we will be back at Lincoln University. For some of us this will be an adventure as the campus is six times larger than when we attended.

The commencement and class reunions weekend schedule has been posted by the university and we have added the events here.  As we are the Emeritus Class there will be special events held in our honor. 

So plan now to come to our 50th Class reunion by arranging for air, train or other transportation.  Rooms will be available on campus and we have also reserved a block of rooms at Mendenhall Inn, near Kennett Square, for those prefer hotel accomodations. 

Also, if you are not already doing so, start sending your contribution to the class gift directly to Lincoln on a weekly, monthly or other convenient basis. All amounts from you will be included in the class total at the Alumni Banquet. Click on the below "donate" button to go directly to the "Class of 1968 Fundraising Page" that we setup on the university's website.  There, you will also see legacy gifts of endowed chairs and scholarships that alumni in other classes have created as part of their class gift.
