The St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501c3 corporation formed in 1973 by the vestry of St. Luke’s.
The Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022. Watch this video to learn more about the past and future of the St. Luke's Foundation.
In conjunction with our 50th anniversary, we embarked on a discernment process to consider the needs of our community and an analysis of our needs and resources. The result is a decision for the Foundation to support and empower mission that is more deeply relational and mutual. We anticipate investing in a local and global partnership to increase engagement in mission with all of our members. We will also continue to support some key partners in ministry and will have limited grants available each year for targeted areas of focus. More information about such grants will be available in the first half of 2024.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Foundation's Trustees are elected from members in good standing of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. St. Luke’s Foundation Sunday is held every year in the season of Epiphany, recognizing the ways in which Jesus' presence is seen around the world. Meet the current Foundation Board members:
Cathy Green (President), Lori Van Wallendael (Vice-President), Edward Norvell (Treasurer), Cris Snarsky-Leckonby, Jennifer McKinney, Dora Mbuwayesango, Barbara Perry, Chip Carter, Greg Shields (Senior Warden), Father Robert Black (Rector).
