Grants help 28 schools visit Lincoln Library


Springfield-- Grants from the Winnick Family Foundation will enable the visits of more than 3,600 low-income students to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.


The museum is announcing a total of $20,665 has been given by the foundation to 28 schools in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. Grants from the California-based organization range from $150 to $1,101 per school.


The Winnick Family Foundation offered field trip grants through the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation to grades 4 through 12 in public and private schools and other organizations. To qualify, the schools needed to demonstrate that more than 30 percent of their students came from low-income homes.


The grants defer the cost of transportation to the museum, lunch, and educational materials.
