Friends of Lincoln Park High School (FOLPHS) is a parent-run, volunteer-based organization seeking to improve educational and cultural opportunities for all students at Lincoln Park High School (LPHS) in Chicago, IL. With our combined energy, ideas and commitment, we fulfill our mission through fundraising, volunteering, and community building events throughout the school year.

Some highlights from the past years:

  • Fundraising: Pledge drive, online auction, annual gala, corporate and individual sponsorships, grant writing, and more. 

  • Communications: Parent newsletter, association articles, PR announcements

  • School spirit: Teacher appreciation, school recruitment, online Spirit Wear Store, parent mixers, IB hospitality, student volunteer opportunities

We normally meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month during the school year at 6:00pm in Room 103 at LPHS. Everyone is welcome to join

Each year, our collective work raises numerous dollars to support the school and its activities. With your support, we can accomplish even more! Please join us in supporting our school!
