Join a community of thousands of people across the nation who value President Lincoln’s example and the work we do to preserve, share, and more fully understand it.

Together, we have built cultural spaces, sponsored exhibits, acquired and displayed collections, and provided a vast array of onsite and online programming to hundreds of teachers, tens of thousands of students, and more than five million visitors from 100-plus countries.

We are a nonprofit, public charity that has never received government operating support. Your membership is tax deductible as allowed by law and directly supports our mission to share the story of Abraham Lincoln’s life, legacy, and leadership with the world.
