Alumni and friends of Lincoln University, your generous support has been the cornerstone of our success in the Lincoln Lions campaign. Thanks to you, we are thrilled to announce significant progress!

Your donations have propelled us through our initial phase, "Bring the Lions Home," where we successfully raised more than $55,000 in under a year. This funding allowed us to acquire and transport two iconic bronze Lion statues that were delivered to Lincoln University on May 23, 2024 and are being safely housed in a temporary location.

Now, the Alumni Association is working with the University to prepare for the launch of the Lincoln Legacy Brick Building Campaign (LLBBC). This will be a buy-a-brick campaign launched via a brand-new website in the next few weeks. Bricks purchased as part of the new campaign will be offered at different price points and will be incorporated into the architectural design for the permanent placement of the Lions.

We are grateful for the alumni, AALU chapters, and friends who donated to our initial efforts to acquire the Lions. Thus far, about 50 alumni and groups have contributed $500 or more and will be the first donors to be gifted with a special engraved brick that will recognize this early support. This is your last chance to donate through the website and be included as our earliest donors to be recognized as one of our earliest donors. If you have given less than $500 and would like to add to that amount to reach the $500 minimum, this is your last opportunity to do so before donation levels reset with the formal launch of the buy-a-brick campaign website. For those who donated less than $500, varying discounts towards purchasing your brick, congruent with your gift, will be offered to acknowledge our appreciation for your support. These details are forthcoming.

This presents a unique opportunity for all alumni and friends to leave a legacy by purchasing personalized bricks to adorn the area where our regal lions will be permanently placed.

We are deeply grateful for your unwavering support, bringing us this far in our remarkable journey. We look forward to the subsequent phases of the campaign, knowing that we are all in this together.
