November 2009 


Dear Lincoln Family & Friends:  

 As members of the Lincoln Family, we have great reasons to be proud of Lincoln.  Due to our 

excellent faculty and administration, overall excellence in education and extracurricular activities, Lincoln 

is the most sought after San Francisco public high school, with over 3000 applications for the 500 

available incoming freshmen class.  


 Every year we conduct our Annual PTSA Fundraiser to augment our school programs 

through direct contributions from you.  This year, we are asking you to make a tax-deductible donation 

of $350 to supplement Lincoln’s numerous academic, arts, sports and extracurricular programs.  It is 

through your past generosity that PTSA was able to provide funding to a variety of much-needed items 

such as: sports lockers, wireless microphones & risers for the Theater Arts Department, breakfast for all 

students during the mandatory STAR testing and AP testing, supplemental teaching materials and 

conditioning equipment for the PE Department.  With the severe budget cuts, this is our time to make a 

difference, to ensure that our children continue to receive the highest education possible.   


 Please consider contributing the recommended tax-deductible donation of $350 per family.  

This is less than $2 per instruction day!  Our goal is 100% participation of any amount for each 

and every Lincoln family. 


 You can donate by completing the enclosed Donation Form and return with your pledge check 

today, or you can make your donation online through PayPal, setup from the Lincoln PTSA website at   


 Thank you in advance for your consideration and generous support!   Your donation will 

make a difference!
