I've now been at Lincoln for 6 months and it has been a great privilege to be back. The staff and students here have been working tirelessly to create a living-learning environment that adds value to the residents and changes people's lives.
As an Alumni or Associate of Lincoln, I know you understand the magic that college creates. This year, our annual appeal is focussed on improving access to college through scholarships and bursaries. In 2018 Lincoln provided financial support to our current residents in scholarships and bursaries. Through this Annual Appeal we are aiming to increase that number and allow more residents to enjoy the experience of college life, which would otherwise be out of reach. The heart of Lincoln has always required that we find a place at the table for all who seek to join us. Support from people like yourselves, who contribute to allow the next generation of residents to experience college life at Lincoln, is so vital to ensuring this continues to be possible.
We are also looking to enhance the student facilities through donations to the College Club. They have plans for updating Common Room facilities for residents to use when they are enjoying some relaxed time away from study.
Please join with me and many of our Board and staff as we make a gift to ensure our current and future residents are given every chance to thrive during their time here at Lincoln. Being part of a community of scholars, supporting each other in personal and professional development, allows Lincoln residents to reach their potential as outstanding citizens and well-rounded individuals. Your annual gift of any size supports Lincoln to continue to flourish as a "place like home" for so many students, as they navigate the path from adolescence to independence.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to Lincoln.
