The Foundation Fund directors manage an account from which interest earned is available for active St. Paul Lutheran families who have a student(s) enrolled in Rockford Lutheran High School. The account has received memorials in honor of saints who are now in the Church Triumphant, as well as gifts from other supporters of Lutheran High School.
If you have a high school student at Lutheran, please contact Steve Hartenberger at 968-2089 or firstname.lastname@example.org by November 11, 2020. We will send a check to the school and evenly allocate the available funds to each student’s tuition shortly after the deadline.
