PRESS RELEASE: Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation Established To Help Families With Tuition Assistance.

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation. In support of Pilgrim’s mission and the Great Commission, the purpose of this endowment fund is to provide a permanent funding source of student tuition assistance at Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School in Beaverton, Oregon.

The endowment fund consists of a balanced and highly-diversified portfolio of stock and bond mutual funds through Thrivent Funds and the InFaith Community Foundation. The initial $58,000 funding of the foundation came from various gifts through designated individual, estate, and corporate matching gifts. The goal is to grow the fund annually through additional gifts and investment returns, and to distribute approximately 4% of the fund balance to the school each year to use for families needing tuition assistance.

The Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation can accept gifts of cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and real estate. Our hope is that people will consider the foundation for gifts they wish to make that exceed their regular church tithe and annual contributions to the Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School auction. We also ask that people consider remembering the foundation in their will or estate plan.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss making a foundation gift, please contact the school office or one of the foundation board members: Doug Hilken-President, Mike Lawyer-Vice President, Anita Swartout-Treasurer, Chris Herold-Secretary, or Melissa Ueeck.
