The General Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in 1985. Designated contributions are added to the fund’s principal, managed by investment trustees. The profits of this fund are used solely for financial aid to Trinity Lutheran Christian School students. Annually, a Financial Aid Committee awards the aid based on family need.

At Trinity Lutheran Christian School, there are additional endowment accounts established by individuals, families, or estates and these profits are also used for financial aid. If you are interested in establishing such an account in your family name, please tell us and we will be happy to advise you of the process.

Since the Endowment Fund was established in 1985, distribution for scholarships through the 2017-18 school year have exceeded $552,000.  Trinity Lutheran Church and School are grateful to the generous people who have established the endowments and to all contributors who ensure this financial assistance to our students.
