FRIENDS OF LINCOLN PARK HIGH SCHOOL AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Friends of Lincoln Park High School (FOLPHS) is a parent-run, volunteer organization seeking to improve the educational and cultural opportunities of our LPHS students. 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 the school.
Lincoln Park High School is ranked one of the top neighborhood high schools in Chicago and CPS is improving, but we also know that public education remains significantly underfunded. Our school needs your help to close that gap.
For those parents whose kids have gone to CPS schools before, we know this drill well. Our pledges cover needed classroom and school expenses that would otherwise leave teachers and students without.
TO EXCELL IN EDUCATION, WE NEED TO SUPPORT IT. TO INVEST IN OUR CHILDREN'S COMMUNITY, WE MUST PARTICIPATE.
Please click below and make your donation today! Donations are appreciated any time but most especially during our campaign drive which is annually from November through January each year.
Each spring at our spring party FOLPHS holds an online and in-person auction to benefit our fundraising efforts . We are always looking for donations of items such as restaurant gift cards, shopping gift certificates as well as sporting and theater event tickets. For more information or to access the donation form, please see below.
The committee is aways looking more volunteers to assist with solicitations, website and distribution items. Please contact Robin Fine for more information.

LPHS COVID-19 RELIEF FUND
The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted everyone in the Lincoln Park High School community. We have seen the strength of students as they continue to make academic progress through remote learning, we have seen the strength of staff members as they adjust teaching strategies to best reach students at home, and we have seen the strength of families as they continue to love and support their children during these unprecedented times.
We need to build upon the strength within our community and stand together to support families that are facing financial hardship due to the impacts of Covid-19. We know that many families have experienced a drastic loss of income due to layoffs, furloughs, and cut hours.
Please consider making a donation so we can provide relief for eligible LPHS families. Our initial goal is to raise $20,000 in order to distribute up to $500 in cash assistance to families in need. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
