Alliance member Lincoln in Oakland, California, won the 2018 Alliance Commitments award for Partnering with Purpose to advance educational success. To improve school attendance, Lincoln created the School Engagement Program, which uses integrated funding strategies and public-private partnerships to identify and support students who are chronically truant or have been identified early as at risk of chronic absenteeism. Now in its fifth year, this Alliance Commitments Award recognizes excellence and high impact in pursuit of our shared vision of a healthy and equitable society. The Alliance Commitments Award recognizes organizations that exemplify the best of the sector through mastery of the Alliance’s Commitments of High-Impact Nonprofit Organizations and achievement of lasting change with children, families, adults, and communities.
Lincoln believes that every child and family can succeed when they have the resources and support they need.
