Salem Foundation

The Salem Foundation was established in 1983 to support and promote the

  charitable, educational and religious ministries of Salem Lutheran Church.  The

  Foundation is a permanent endowment fund that spends a portion of earnings to

  support our mission. 


  The Foundation is governed by the Salem Foundation Board which is responsible

  for making policy and investment decisions, providing gift counseling, setting an

  annual budget for and dispersing Foundation grants, and communicating

  Foundation goals to the congregation and the community.   


   Making a legacy gift to the Salem Foundation today is wonderful way to support

   God’s ministry through Salem Lutheran Church into perpetuity. Contact the church

   office if you would like more information.

Foundation grant applications are available in late September-October each year. Online and paper applications will be available. 

Ruth Betts and Ramona Mohs Scholarships will be available in the Spring of each year.
