To the honor of Christ Jesus, Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis seeks the improved care of people in the greater St. Louis metropolitan region.
In order to engage the Church in and measurably improve the lives of hurting people, Lutheran Foundation provides financial and non-financial support to strengthen the capacities of organizations and to support quality, impactful programs.
Building on our rich heritage of partnering with Christian churches and organizations, the Board of Directors has implemented a strategic funding plan to guide our efforts over five years (2020 – 2024). The plan focuses our philanthropy in six areas that address clearly demonstrated, measurable community needs and allow us to better understand and determine our community impact.
- Christian Faith in Action
- Congregation Community Engagement
- Lutheran Schools and Organizations
- Foreign-Born Populations
- Justice-Involved Individuals and Their Families
- Older Adults Maintaining Independence
