Lincoln Financial Foundation To Award $10,000 To Junior Achievement As Winner Of Charitable Vote Campaign

RADNOR, Pa., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that Junior Achievement has won the company's Charitable Vote campaign: a $10,000 award resulting from a three-month social media campaign in which Lincoln Financial's Facebook® fans chose the national nonprofit group they felt best represents President Abraham Lincoln's ideals of freedom and opportunity through education. The award will be divided equally among Junior Achievement's chapters in Omaha, Neb., Fort Wayne, Ind., and Greensboro, N.C.—the cities where Lincoln Financial has office locations.

"We are proud to recognize Junior Achievement, as well as all of our other nonprofit partners, for their ongoing commitment to educational initiatives that expand opportunities for children and their families," said Nancy Rogers, president of the Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group. "It's been nearly 150 years since Abraham Lincoln's presidency, but his legacy of freedom and opportunity endures through the tremendous work of these groups. Those values also serve as an inspiration behind our own corporate commitment to making a difference in the communities."

Voting took place between February 25, 2013, and May 17, 2013.

"Junior Achievement is honored to be associated with President Lincoln's ideals of freedom and opportunity through education," said Jack E. Kosakowski, president and chief executive officer of Junior Achievement USA. "Since 1919, Junior Achievement has been dedicated to helping young people succeed through entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness programs. On behalf of our local operations in Omaha, Fort Wayne and Greensboro, we are grateful for the support of Lincoln Financial's online community and for the generosity demonstrated by this grant."
