June 2020 Grant Cycle Update

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the St. Louis metropolitan area, Lutheran Foundation has worked diligently to determine the best approach to utilizing our resources to help stabilize our community. The Board of Directors have decided to change how we allocate funding for the June 2020 Grant Cycle.

  1. $2.3 million in Partner Stability Grants has been awarded to 73 of our key funding partners.
  2. $500,000 has been allocated for Crisis Response Grants to our Lutheran Foundation delegate member congregations and Lutheran schools.
  3. A limited amount of funding is still available for those who did not receive a Partner Stability Grant. For those interested in applying for these funds, we strongly encourage you to contact one of our Program Officers to discuss your application.  The application deadline is still June 1, 2020.
