Class Contribution. Lincoln has set the financial goal of $20,000 for our class. Thus, we are asking everyone to give as much as you can so that we not only reach but exceed the goal on this momentous ocassion. The university has many gift programs and this is a great time to consider a matching gift or bequest of assets (securities, life insurance, significant art, cash, real estate, charitable remainder trust, other). Not only will such a gift help to swell our total but will be used to support the immediate needs of students, faculty and programs or fund an endowment that will serve future generations per your preference. Persons contributing $1,000 or more will get two ticktets to the banquet. The university is tallying contributions by class throughout the year. If you send your contribution early to Lincoln, it will be credited to our class. Otherwise, bring your checkbook so you can present your contribution to the class gift at the dinner Friday night. (If you are unable to attend, please send the check to Ed Hill, 3377 Meadow Brook Blvd., Cleveland Heights, OH 44118). Importantly, please indicate the amount of your pledged contribution to the Class Gift on the RSVP page so that we can guage our progress in reaching goal.
