Thank you for your support of Christ-centered education!  Listen to one of our students describe why Central Lutheran is important to him::



If you want to support families in sending their children to Central, you can help fund scholarships through the Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization.  The SGO program has significant tax benefits for you as a donor in addition to providing need-based scholarships for our students.  All of the tax credits for 2016 have already been claimed state-wide.  SGO tax credits will renew again on July 1.  Contact John Weber for more details.

Legacy Fund

The Legacy Fund is the Central Lutheran endowment fund.  An endowment fund is meant for long-term, lasting gifts.  Usually these gifts come from insurance policies, estate plans, or other planned gifts.  However, the Lutheran Foundation of Fort Wayne has given us a wonderful opportunity!  For every dollar donated to our endowment fund, the Lutheran Foundation will give us TWO dollars!  A donation of $500 turns into $1,500 for Central.  A donation of $1,000 becomes $3,000!  The Foundation's match comes to Central in two ways.  The first dollar is put into our Legacy Fund.  The second dollar is given directly to the school for support of various programs.  To give toward this matching program, you can click on this button.



Would you like to learn more about the impact of legacy gifts such as estate planning or other gift vehicles for Central or for our congregations?  Contact John Weber today for more details.

Thrivent Choice

If you have any products through Thrivent (such as life insurance,  IRAs, or other vehicles), you have the ability to direct Thrivent Choice dollars to Central Lutheran.  These are donations that come directly from Thrivent and not from your account. However, you are able to direct where those donations go.  Please visit the  Thrivent website and choose Central as your charity of choice.


Amazon Smile

If you shop via, you can direct Amazon to give money back to Central.  Simply use this address:  when you shop.  The first time that you use this site, you will need to choose Central Lutheran as the charity of your choice.
