Lincoln’s Legacy, Our Legacy

Ford’s Theatre is steeped in history, and we are always looking forward.

President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy as a great American has never been more important, or more relevant. Ford’s Theatre Society is focused on finding new ways to bring Lincoln’s legacy to life for the 21st-century learner through intensive on-site educational programs, deeper theatre experiences and open civil discourse with the public.

Lincoln’s Legacy, Our Legacy: Ford’s Theatre’s Campaign for the Future  will raise $50 million to transform Ford’s Theatre into a vibrant, visible and accessible destination to explore leadership principles and find new ways to bring Lincoln’s legacy to life for current and future generations. Here, we will foster the vital voices of artists, patrons, scholars, educators and students.
