Lincoln Community Foundation | News and Info

Lincoln Community Foundation Inc.

The concept for organizing a community trust for Lincoln and Lancaster County, now known as the Lincoln Community Foundation, became reality due to the interests of family members, Thomas C., Frank, and Henry Woods, who strongly believed that the creation and operation of such an entity would constitute a powerful force for the good of the Lincoln community. The Woods' great affection and interest in the welfare of Lincoln urged the family to give every cooperation to see to it that a way was provided for Lincoln citizens to make charitable gifts with the certainty that their intentions would be permanently observed no matter how conditions or needs changed.
