To observe each anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln; to preserve and make more readily accessible the landmarks associated with his life; and to actively encourage, promote and aid the collection and dissemination of authentic information regarding all phases of his life and career

We Invite You to Contribute to the Endowment Fund

Keep The Story Alive in the Next 100 Years

During the last 100 years, The Abraham Lincoln Association has made significant contributions to keeping alive the unique story and ideals of the Greatest American.  Those contributions have taken many forms, including the publication of scholarly works, providing teaching materials to students, and providing preservation assistance for Lincoln sites.  Many of those contributions are listed at the ALA History/Projects tab.

In the next 100 years, it will be even more important to keep the story of Abraham Lincoln alive and relevant to future generations.  To do so will require an endowment that will permit funding of important projects.  Without an endowment, opportunities will be lost.  Please join in keeping the story alive in the next 100 years.
