The Bethlehem Lutheran Church Foundation was established in 1957 to provide a way for members, friends and family of Bethlehem Lutheran Church to leave legacy gifts that would benefit the church’s programming, its mission and its outreach to others. The mission of the Foundation is to gather, invest, and disburse financial resources to further the mission and values of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The Board of Directors establishes and reviews investments and granting policies as part of its work.

Currently, the Foundation awards grants for the following purposes:

  • Tuition assistance for Lutheran seminarians
  • Special projects that fall outside of the annual church budget
  • Building projects
  • Staff enrichment
  • Outreach beyond the church’s direct mission
