Earlier this year, we announced that we had relaunched the Lincoln Presidential Foundation with a new name and brand that reflect our broader mission and a new role: leading and supporting efforts across the nation and beyond to share the story of Abraham Lincoln’s life, legacy, and leadership.  We will be establishing new partnerships and collaborations as part of these efforts.  The first of the Foundation’s new partnerships is with the National Park Service (NPS). The NPS administers dozens of sites across the country connected to President Lincoln and his legacy. The Foundation’s pilot agreement with NPS is philanthropic support of the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield, IL. We are delighted to shine a spotlight on the Lincoln Home during this Open House.

The Foundation’s vision is to globally protect and expand freedom and democracy inspired by the life and work of President Lincoln.  World events, including the recent invasion of Ukraine, are a persistent reminder that there is a global need for leaders who are principled, intellectually curious, and honest—traits embodied by Abraham Lincoln. Sharing new research and new perspectives on Abraham Lincoln is key to understanding—and addressing—what he called the “unfinished work” of freedom and democracy, and will remain a key part of our work.

We are excited to share this new partnership with you and hope that you will make plans now to join us on Wednesday, July 27th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for an Open House at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site located in Springfield, Illinois.  We sincerely appreciate your founding support and look forward to seeing you in July.
