Immanuel Lutheran Fund makes annual grants

The Lutheran Community Foundation (LCF) recently announced grants from The Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church of North Minneapolis Endowment Fund, a permanently-endowed, charitable fund established at LCF upon the closing of Immanuel Lutheran Church of Minneapolis. More than $53,000 is being awarded from the fund to support various Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) programs and scholarship awards in 2011.

Scholarships, each in the amount of $7,100, were granted to three recipients: John Henry, III, of Lewisville, Minnesota, attending Concordia Theological Seminary (CTS) in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Adam Koglin of Hutchinson, Minnesota, attending Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis, Missouri; and Travis J. Loeslie, of Lewisville, attending CTS. The scholarships are awarded to congregants within the Minnesota South District of the LCMS who are pursuing their studies at an LCMS college, university, or seminary.

The Immanuel Endowment Fund has generated grants totaling more than $21,000 to Concordia Academy in Roseville and Lutheran High School in Mayer, to provide scholarship assistance to students attending these LCMS schools. LINC —Twin Cities and Minnesota South District will each receive $5,300 to support urban city ministry and the LCMS Ministerial Health Program respectively.

Founded in 1888, Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church maintained a strong commitment to education. A school affiliated with the church was founded in the same year to provide English language and religious instruction to immigrant families.

LCF is a Minneapolis faith-based public charity that exists to provide a connection between donors and the community.
