Lincoln's Legacy

Freedom. Opportunity. Equality. It's the legacy that Abraham Lincoln left to generations of Americans — and it's the legacy we must preserve and promote for generations to come. That's why Lincoln Financial Group launched the Lincoln's Legacy initiative in 2013.

Lincoln's Legacy marks the 150th anniversaries of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment. As the only company with permission from Robert Todd Lincoln to use his father's name and image, we feel a strong connection to our namesake. We’ve developed a series of events and experiences that recognize and celebrate the former president's legacy.

We invite you to learn more about this special initiative. From the notable oral histories we're capturing to help inspire today's children, to the $50,000 Lincoln's Legacy Award presented to a deserving education-focused nonprofit, to exciting events centered around the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment, Lincoln's Legacy offers a unique opportunity to connect with the past, present and future.


“May our children and our children’s children to a thousand generations, continue to enjoy the benefits conferred upon us by a united country.”
