Board of Trustees

An independent Board of Trustees oversees all activities of the Abraham Lincoln Foundation. This governing body is comprised of an even ratio of Union League members and non-Union League members who are professionals in the education or history community. The ALF would not be the successful organization that it is today without this leadership.
