The Lincoln Hills Foundation – 20 Years Strong
In 2002, Del Webb Corporation provided $5000 in startup funds to establish the Lincoln Hills Foundation (LHF) to provide support for residents who experienced challenges as they aged in place. Thus began the collaboration between the SCLH Community Association and the Lincoln Hills Foundation that has continued for the past 20 years and will continue long into our future.
The purpose of the Foundation was to “receive donations and generate funds for the support of programs which meet the physical, educational and/or social needs of the senior residents of Sun City Lincoln Hills.” In 2007, the LHF board expanded the support of seniors to include “the surrounding community of Lincoln.” The LHF is a 501(c)3 public benefit nonprofit corporation, operated and managed 100% by volunteers. As a charity organization, donors know that every dollar raised as a donation is used to support its programs through grants.
CPR Can Save a Life – Especially Yours! – A testimonial from a CPR Class Attendee
I took the CPR class offered some time ago with the intention of being ready to help a friend or neighbor if needed. Never did I think I would be using it on me!
The other night I had a real scare. I’ve had been dealing with a bad cold and cough for almost 2 weeks. Coughing always keeps me awake at night so I had to do something in order to get some sleep. So, I got up at 4:00 am to take meds and went back to bed sucking on a cough drop. One big breath and I inhaled the cough drop. I couldn’t breathe but from the CPR class I knew what I had to do — I jumped out of bed (a feat in itself) and threw my body over the back of my vanity chair two times. There was only a night light on but I could see that the cough drop had been dislodged and was resting on the on the chair.
Thank goodness that I learned the Heimlich in a CPR class. Living alone it’s critical knowledge to have. If I didn’t have the chair, I still would have done the same thing using the counter.
I was happy to see the sun this morning! And I only have a small bruise to show for it—-no broken ribs!
Many thanks to the Lincoln Hills Foundation for sponsoring CPR classes for only $15. It’s worth taking a class, the life you save may be your own.

The Lincoln Hills Foundation (LHF) funds solutions and programs that enhance the quality of life for the senior residents of the Lincoln community. The LHF, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Lincoln Hills that designates every donation dollar to grants for programs and services, has been focused on the well-being of seniors since 2001. Currently, four of our programs are focused on enhancing the safety of our senior residents.
The LHF was one of the initial funders for Project Lifesaver which began in June 2021 through the Lincoln Police Department (LPD). Project Lifesaver is an international search and rescue program designed to locate wandering, missing persons diagnosed with Cognitive Disorders and return them safely to their caregivers.
