Central Foundation

Our Mission Statement:

     "To serve God's people in Christ's name by providing    

     financial foundations to the ministries of Central

     Lutheran Church for all generations."


For more than 40 years, Central Lutheran Church has been blessed with a Foundation Trust – financial gifts and bequests graciously given to use for needs beyond normal budget expenses. Each year, a percentage of the interest earned is available to fund projects that will improve and perpetuate the mission of Central Lutheran.
