The Marco Lutheran Church Foundation is a non-profit organization established by the congregation in 1999. The Foundation’s purpose is to provide funds for educational, charitable, and religious programs of Marco Lutheran Church, the local community, and across the globe. It could also help the church meet new challenges/opportunities that would not normally be met by the annual budget.
Foundation Mission: To receive charitable gifted funds, invest and manage these funds, and to provide financial support for non-budget religious, educational, and charitable programs that further the ministry of Marco Lutheran Church.
Each year the foundation awards grants to not-for-profit agencies that favor an ultimate product or service that advances our goal of Christian outreach.
