St. Luke Church Endowment

How Does an Endowment Impact Ministry? When a gift is given to the St. Luke Lutheran Church Endowment Fund, whether to an existing fund or one that you establish, your gift has a lasting impact. The goal of the fund is to use the earnings your gift creates for current or future ministry at St. Luke Lutheran Church. 

Opportunities for Impact 

‚óŹ Missions¬†

‚óŹ Evangelism¬†

Endowment Growth 

As the Endowment Fund increases over time from investment growth and/or from additional funds being added, the likelihood of more funds being available for unrestricted or designated ministry purposes also increases. The result of a well-funded endowment at St. Luke Lutheran Church is more, and better ministry. 

How is the Endowment Guided and Monitored? 

The role of the Endowment Committee is to watch over the investment of the Endowment Funds to ensure that the investment strategy is being adhered to. The committee meets to review the fund status and to make any necessary adjustments to continue maximum Endowment Fund growth.
