ST. LUKE'S FOUNDATION
Leaving a Legacy
Who We Serve and Support
Your gift to the Foundation provides the opportunity to extend the mission and ministry of the church through a variety of areas.
Scholarships - Each year, the St. Luke's Foundation, along with the Scholarship Committee, awards several college, trade school, or seminary scholarships to St. Luke's students.
Music - The Foundation allows St. Luke's to provide musical instruments and other support to the Music Ministry.
Ministry Areas and Missions - The Foundation enhances ministries with special speakers, training and evolving areas of ministry, benefiting St. Luke's members as well as local, regional, national, and worldwide missions.
Building and Property Needs - The Foundation provides funding to deal with unexpected and unfunded building and property repairs.
Most gifts given to the Foundation are undesignated and are used in various ministry areas that are not generally covered in the annual budget.
Designated gifts to the Foundation are also encouraged. The donor specifies a particular ministry area where they direct their gifts. In some cases, the donor may prefer to designate their gift to the Foundation as an endowment, in which the principal would be maintained and only earnings could be directed to one or more ministry areas.
"I had my will re-done and included St. Luke’s Foundation in it. I wanted to make this gift possible for all that St. Luke’s has done for me. If you haven’t prepared a will or are planning on making changes to your existing will, I would encourage you to think of doing this."

"I received the Ollie Groth Memorial Scholarship this year. I attended Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. I am in my final year as a Masters of Divinity student; It is hard to believe, but soon I will find out where our family will be living as we answer this call. I will be serving in parish ministry following graduation and we are so excited to see where God is going to call us to serve! But none of this would be possible without the support of the St. Luke's Foundation. THANK YOU!"
