Over 100 years ago, our founders saw a practical need in our area, and their response has had a lasting legacy. Today, The Lutheran Foundation continues to make an impact in 10 counties in northeast Indiana. When we work together to embody Christ’s love, lives are transformed and our community finds healing. Since 1995, we've invested close to $179 million in Lutheran churches, schools,  and ministries, as well as community organizations. In 2019, more than $10 million in grants were awarded.
