Donate to the WLS Alumni Funds
The seminary is a special place with a special purpose. By God’s grace, your alma mater continues its commitment to God’s Word and the Lutheran Confessions. We train men to serve as pastors and missionaries, proclaiming Christ’s love to a dying world. Your ministry is part of the living legacy of the confessional theological training you received at the seminary. As part of this legacy, we invite you to help lay a foundation for future generations of pastors.
Three WLS Alumni funds exist to support the mission of the seminary.
Each year, the alumni awards scholarships to current students, supporting the next generation of those who will preach the gospel to a hurting world.
The alumni also supports current pastors through Grow in Grace, the seminary’s institute for pastoral growth. The fund especially aims to decrease costs for celebration of ministry retreats. These retreats are held at the three, ten, 25, and 35-year mark of ministry and are designed to refresh and renew pastors and their wives.
Knruxate endowment fund
The goal of the Khruxate Endowment Fund is “to leave a legacy for the messengers of tomorrow.” This permanently-endowed fund of WELS Alumni will provide interest income for the continuing support of projects and scholarships as designated by the WLS Alumni.
• Efforts to grow the fund will be managed by the WLS Alumni Investment and Grants Committee.
• Gifts to the fund will remain intact—only interest income will be dispersed.
• No disbursements of interest income will be made until the fund reaches a value of $50,000.
• WLS Alumni are urged to consider planned giving as a means to support the fund.
