Mission Endowment Fund
The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd Mission Endowment Fund was created in 1996 following the bequest of $530,000 to the Church by Ilse Mengel. Her only request was that the funds be used to help people who were in need.
The Endowment Fund has been set up as a perpetual fund to receive, manage, and distribute grants to ministries and charities both locally and worldwide. If you would like to apply for a grant from the Mission Endowment Fund, please click here (MEF Application Form) to download an application form.
