Triumphant Love Lutheran Church chartered the Outreach Fund as a dedicated fund to operate within the Endowment, and committed to providing grants to 501(c)3 organizations that help vulnerable people. The fund was announced to the Triumphant Love congregation at the 2000 Annual Congregational Meeting. Title to property given to the Outreach Fund as the first donation was transferred to the Endowment, through the Church, in November 2000, and the Outreach Fund charter was signed February 2002.
The Outreach Fund is designed to operate in perpetuity and will distribute up to 5% of its fund balance annually to help people who cannot help themselves, thus enhancing the Church’s Total Mission and Ministry and to the Glory of God. Funds shall be awarded to eligible non-profit organizations locally and throughout the country.
Eligibility for grants
Any 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to help people in need is qualified to receive a grant from the TLLC Endowment. Grants shall be awarded only for projects or items that are outside of the operating budget of TLLC, that are consistent with the religious and ethical standards of the Congregation, and that are seen to have the potential for achieving their specified purposes.
