The Foundations

The Heritage Center houses the offices of the Union League’s three charitable non-profit Foundations: Youth Work, Scholarship and Abraham Lincoln Foundation. Each of the Foundations provides a unique method of giving back to the community—through educating the public about our nation’s history, recognizing student role models in our region’s high schools and providing scholarships to deserving students. Members and community involvement in these charitable organizations is exemplary and distinguishes the Union League from many other city clubs.
