Mission: To serve our donors with integrity as together we change lives and spread joy by sharing our blessings with the world.
Programs: Most grants from the Foundation are from donor advised Funds. These charitable funds provide millions of dollars to charities serving our local, national and international communities. Through these grants, the Lutheran community experiences joy in giving, lives are transformed by connecting assets with opportunities and needs, and effective, positive and lasting change is achieved throughout our shared community.
Through its Collaborative Funds, the Foundation takes the voice of donors into the community to address issues that call for a broader approach and more unified response. Gifts to one or more of these funds allow the Foundation to facilitate larger conversations and create strategic responses to issues facing our shared community. Areas of focus include disaster response, health, education, environment human services, and domestic violence prevention.
