About Us

The Lutheran Education Foundation of Minnesota, LEFM, is a faith-based charity which maintains a strong commitment to education.

LEFM was founded by individuals concerned that our Lutheran schools are under-funded. Each operates independently and is financed primarily by student tuition, family contributions, and partnering churches. Great effort is made to keep tuition affordable, while at the same time providing a quality education.

Realizing that these schools are a great asset to our communities, the Board of Directors is determined to provide a connection between school supporters and the community. It is scholarships that enable students, who might not otherwise be able, to begin or prepare for higher education. All deserve in terms of need and achievement.

Only through partnerships can we best serve our children, families, and community. Together we can accomplish what we cannot do as individuals. Together, we can offer HOPE.

100% of all gifts go to the schools for education. The LEFM Board absorbs all operating costs.

Our Goals
