What is the King of Glory Lutheran Church Foundation?
Through the gifts of many, the King of Glory Lutheran Church Foundation can provide vital financial support to the ministries of King of Glory Lutheran Church. Established with the King of Glory Lutheran Church Endowment Fund and a memorial fund in 2008, the Foundation provides energy and financial resources to King of Glory Lutheran Church as it lives out its mission to celebrate, discover, and share the love of Christ in the community, city, and world beyond.
The Foundation is an independent, non-profit corporation governed by a Board of Trustees who are members of King of Glory Lutheran Church. Working collaboratively with the Senior Pastor and leadership of the Church, the Foundation's purpose is to receive gifts, to hold the principal of such gifts in perpetuity, and to give the value increase of these gifts to the Church or to fund special projects as identified by the donor.
Currently, through gifts and investment growth, the Foundation's assets support the overall mission and benevolence goals of the Church. Through the direction of the Board of Trustees, Foundation funds are professionally managed by the Investments Committee who are members of the Church.
How does the mission of King of Glory benefit?
Based on ministry requests, each year Church ministries will receive a distribution gift from the Foundation, which helps to sustain and enhance the many ministry programs of the Church. As the principal grows through your gifts, the greater the support for the work of the Church.
Gifts to the Foundation are not used to support daily church operations. They are used to expand King of Glory's ministries. Recently, the Foundation has supported ministries such as:
- Seminary scholarships for local ministry students
- Seminary scholarships for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sierra Leone, Africa
- Support for the Umojo Mission which meets at King of Glory
- In the City For Good Food Pantry
