The Luther Fund

Luther’s Annual Fund has a new name and look, but nothing else has changed. Donations to the Luther Fund have a hand in just about everything students need: scholarships and financial aid, field study trips, music tours, student organizations, volunteer opportunities in the community, college ministries, residence hall improvements, campus landscaping, building maintenance, intramural sports, student/faculty research, and much, much more.

Scholarship Support
