Barnes Foundation to host Endowment Scholarship Fundraiser

 

Lincoln University Partners with Renowned Museum to Fund Endowment for Undergraduate Research 

Art enthusiasts and supporters of higher education are invited to attend an evening at the Barnes Foundation to support Lincoln University’s Endowed Undergraduate Student Research Scholarship Fund. The Endowed Undergraduate Student Research Scholarship Fund was established in partnership with Lincoln’s Class of 1970 to support the work of select undergraduate students from their chosen discipline who undertake scholarly projects. Projects will be formal student-faculty collaboration intended for publication in scholarship or project journals.

The fundraiser takes place Sunday, October 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Barnes Foundation located at 2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. All proceeds from the $75 per person event go directly to benefit the endowment and are tax deductible to the extent permitted by established IRS code.

Endowment supporters will partake in a hors d’oeuvres and beverage reception followed by independent tours of the Barnes’ 23 art galleries, which include works of artists such as Henri Matisse, Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Selena Cuffee, co-founder, president and CEO of Heritage Link Brands, the largest wine importer and producer of African descent in the world and an owner of Silkbush Mountain Vineyards, will be honored.

The goal is to fund the entire $50,000 endowment in this single event and sponsorships are encouraged. For additional information, please contact Lincoln University’s Office of Institutional Advancement at 484-365-7440. For sponsorships, contact Stephen McDaniel, interim vice president of Institutional Advancement at smcdaniel@lincoln.edu or for tickets www.lincoln.edu/barnesreception.
