Spring 2021 Applications Open February 15


The St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501c3 corporation formed in 1973 by the vestry of St. Luke’s. 


Grants are available for local and international organizations from these funds twice annually, with a spring deadline of early April and a fall deadline of early October.


The Foundation has three endowment funds. Please review the Missional Priorities of the SLF as well as these FAQs For Applicants for more information. 

  • Fund A: funds periodic major maintenance repair, capital improvements and restoration of St. Luke’s properties. This grant is only available to the Vestry of St. Luke's.

  • Fund B (Foreign Missions): This fund is used exclusively for Christian service in the spread of the Gospel message through missionaries or missions, health services, or education by nonprofit organizations. Preference is given to projects with Episcopal sponsoring organizations.

  • Fund C: This fund supports projects or programs aimed at providing for Christian service in North Carolina with preference given to programs in the Salisbury-Rowan community.


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 2021 Board of Trustees.
