The Ascension Lutheran Church Foundation…
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit…” John 15:5
The Foundation serves a wonderful function for Ascension members and the community. The Foundation, subject to special gift restrictions, spends only the interest from investments. The greater part of the Foundation’s income stream is directed to outreach, education, missions, and capital programs.
During the past three years, the Foundation has given over $175,000 in financial assistance toward missions and in-house special projects. The Foundation supports Ascension college-bound students and those interested in seminary education. We are also currently supporting missionary work in the Far East.

The Foundation has a Lutheran Elementary School Fund that aids Ascension members who wish to send their children to area Lutheran schools. There is also a special fund that sponsors family seminars. Much of the Foundation’s assistance stays in our community.
We invite you to join us in expanding the work of the Foundation and make a financial commitment to the growth of the Foundation General Fund. Increasing the General Fund generates an increased income stream, which in turn provides additional support for Missions, Education, Outreach, and Capital Programs.
Planned giving and memorial gifts are an important part of our income. These are perpetual gifts, since only the interest is spent. Consider including the Ascension Lutheran Church Foundation in your estate planning through a will, life insurance gift, or trust. Gifts can be restricted if you desire, or given to the general fund.
