New Opportunities. New Challenges. New Blessings. And a match!

Posted on Dec 22, 2022 by Mark Muehl - Funding the Mission

While we Christians look with anticipation of celebrating the birth of our Savior, The Lutheran Schools Partnership is also looking ahead to 2023 with eyes of anticipation as we progress through the dreaming, researching and planning that has occurred for most of 2022.

This past January, over 40 Lutheran school supporters from our region and beyond spent three days considering the future challenges and opportunities for Lutheran Schools and proposed ways in which we might do things better together. From those discussions has come a work plan that includes mentoring, teacher recruitment, family life ministry networking, comprehensive counseling support, and centralizing some administrative services.

To make the plan a reality, TLSP will need to grow in staff and in financial support. As you consider your year end giving, I hope you will support TLSP’s jump into the new year. As we continue to seek ways to support our region’s Lutheran Schools, we will be encouraged by your gift.

Consider the following options….

  • Initiate your gift online (

  • Consider a recurring gift (use the same link above); you can see our recent post on why Zach and Lindsey use auto pay here.

  • Send your gift to The Lutheran Schools Partnership, 1601 St Joe River Dr, Fort Wayne, IN 46805

  • Gifts of stock, IRA assets, and Donor Advised Funds; contact us for details, and you can use the same address above.

  • Thrivent Choice dollars (look under Lutheran School Services Organization Inc.)

As teased in our title, we’re excited to share that a friend of TLSP has offered a $10,000 match for end-of-year gifting. We hope that folks like you will meet the challenge and contribute.

Finally, don’t be shy about sharing your thoughts in support of Lutheran Schools; I love to talk with everyone! Call, text or email me and let’s visit.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. The match is for any gift to TLSP… IRA transfers, DAFs, stocks, cards, and checks… I look forward to meeting with many of you in 2023.
