Sustaining the Mission: Projects and Priorities

Join us as we grow our endowment and invest in Luther's most precious resource‒our students, faculty, and staff. During this time of leadership transition, Luther's development efforts remain focused on our student-centered mission. A two-year transitional funding initiative‒Sustaining the Mission‒focuses on growing the Annual Fund and securing support for select program and scholarship endowments. In addition, as new reunion class initiatives for key reunion years are established, an enhanced planned-giving effort has been launched in tandem with the college's ongoing effort to increase alumni participation and support for the Annual Fund.
