The Crean Lutheran Endowment Fund
As we move forward with faith and courage into the decades ahead, we know the future will hold both exceptional opportunities and unique challenges. Together we strive for Crean Lutheran to remain strong, effective, and faithful, as we Proclaim Jesus Christ through Excellence in Education. As we prepare for this future, we encourage those who value the impact of a Christ-centered education, to consider providing a legacy gift through the Crean Lutheran Endowment Fund.
This fund offers a long-term giving opportunity, allowing gifts to bless the school many times over. With the principal amount continuing to grow, a portion of the investment income from the fund can be used each year to help offset annual operating costs and support a variety of school programs, including missions/outreach and tuition assistance support.
Leaving a Legacy with a Named Fund
Those who provide a gift to the endowment fund of $25,000 or more may elect to name their fund if desired.
We encourage you, in gratitude to what God has done in your life or through Crean Lutheran, to consider leaving a lasting legacy through your support of the endowment fund. Any and all gifts to the endowment are greatly appreciated.
