The Augustana Foundation was established by the Augustana Lutheran Church congregation in 1971. The nine-member Committee meets quarterly (February, May, August and November) and is responsible for the investment and administration of funds which have been given by people wishing to provide a legacy or to memorialize and honor relatives and friends through Augustana Lutheran Church of Denver. Only the investment income from the original Foundation Fund can be expended at the discretion of the Foundation Committee. The principal can be expended only with the approval of a majority of the Congregation at a duly called meeting.
The purpose of The Augustana Foundation Fund is to encourage and support projects or undertakings which
- Enrich or uplift the spiritual life of Augustana Lutheran Church;
- Provide a desirable addition or improvement to Augustana’s facilities that cannot be funded entirely through other channels; and
- Provide needed assistance or support to a worthy individual or family, or a worthy Christian ministry.
