Motorola announces the first group of Motorola Abraham Lincoln grant recipients

Motorola Foundation announced the first group of Motorola Abraham Lincoln grant recipients. The $750,000 grant program provides funding in two cycles for civic, education and cultural organizations that inspire and educate the public about Lincoln’s life and legacy. Motorola Lincoln Grants fund programs that use innovative curriculum to educate students in the areas of civics, history and social studies and develop programming for the public about Lincoln’s life. Grant programs also engage young people and community members in public policy issues with forums and tools to foster debate.

Motorola Lincoln Grant recipients will explore and celebrate Lincoln’s legacy in classrooms, college campuses and communities across U.S.A. The Motorola Foundation is the charitable and philanthropic arm of Motorola.
