We are grateful for the financial support of the ELCA and the synods of Region 1. But these sources of financial support do not cover the cost of providing ministry and programs to students, faculty and university staff. More than 69 percent of our budget is raised through donations from congregations, individuals, and fundraising activities. You can help provide solid support for ministry by contributing cash, writing a check, designating Luther House as an insurance beneficiary, donating property or stocks, and other ways too. To make a contribution you can write a check c/o Luther House, 211 NW 23rd Street, Corvallis, Oregon 97330. Or you can use one of the following giving options.

Endowment Fund

The “We Care for the Future” Endowment was created by and for campus ministries of the ELCA to invest in the future of campus ministry. Gifts given to Luther House for the endowment fund are deposited in the pooled assets of the ELCA Foundation. Each quarter we receive a dividend from invested funds which we use to support Luther House programming. While the principle is protected, the growth increases ministry options for us. As the fund grows, so do the opportunities for new, creative campus ministry programs.
