RADNOR, Pa., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that it will recognize three nonprofits over the next three years as part of its "Lincoln's Legacy" initiative.

The Legacy Award is part of "Lincoln's Legacy," the company's three-year initiative that coincides with the 150 th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

"We are pleased to make the recognition of nonprofits a key part of Lincoln's Legacy," said Nancy Rogers, senior vice president and president of the Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group. "Through the Legacy Awards, we will celebrate those organizations whose mission, vision and programs create the level of access and opportunity our namesake, Abraham Lincoln, envisioned for this nation."

Applications for this year's award are being accepted now through September 13, 2013.

"We practice Diversity and Inclusion throughout every aspect of our business, including our relationships within local communities," said Allison Green, senior vice president and chief diversity officer for Lincoln Financial Group. "We believe Lincoln's Legacy and the Legacy Awards will help present new opportunities for our country's children, and give them access to important resources."

All applications meeting the eligibility requirements will be reviewed by Lincoln Financial's Internal Selection Panel, which will then select ten finalists. The company's Facebook fans will then vote for their favorite finalist to help choose the winner of the first Legacy Award. Visit http://bit.ly/15HiCaq for the application form and other details.
