Minnesota South District
LCEF Outreach Event Grants
About the Grants
The Lutheran Church Extension Fund is a nonprofit ministry of the Church; therefore, fiscal year end operating results are put right back into mission and ministry. LCEF is blessed by strong investors and faithful borrowers. It's a partnership that's working, thus we have these grant funds available to our Minnesota South District - Lutheran Church Missouri Synod organizations.
There are five LCEF Outreach Event Grants available to Minnesota South District LCMS organizations; each grant is $1,000.
All member Minnesota South District - LCMS organizations are eligible. To be considered for a grant, the organization must:
- Conduct a specific outreach/evangelism event designed to reach those who don't know Christ within one year of receipt of this grant.
- Reflect the goals of the LCEF mission statement (visit lcefuppermidwest.org)
- Provide photos and a written summary of the outreach event funded by this grant to Maria.Hendrickson@lcef.org (within one year of receipt of grant) for promotional purposes. Previous winners who have not submitted feedback will not be considered for this year's award.
This completed application must be accompanied by a typed one page* description of your organization's specific outreach event. This narrative should describe the Outreach Event, goals and provide reasons why your organization should be selected as an LCEF Outreach Grant recipient. (When applying online, you will be asked to upload your narrative in a PDF or Microsoft Word format.)
*Please note, narratives of more than one page in length will not be considered.
Completed applications must be received by Mar. 1, 2017.
Entries will be evaluated by a panel of LCEF staff and volunteers.
Recommendations Consider inclusion of diverse populations, clearly identify responsibilities, time lines, follow up steps and financial feasibility if grant is received.
