The Foundation is a nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Trustees who are members of Central. The Foundation’s purpose is to receive gifts, to hold the principal of such gifts in perpetuity and to give the income growth of these gifts to Central.
Through the gifts of many, the Central Lutheran Foundation provides vital financial support to the ministry of Central Lutheran Church. Established with an initial bequest in 1952 of one thousand dollars in a member’s will, the Foundation continues to provide energy and financial resources to Central Lutheran Church as it lives out its mission to celebrate, discover, and share the love of Christ in the city and the world beyond.
