LUF is dependent entirely on its own fundraising efforts and the support of its members and friends. We encourage people to pledge financially as this gives us the ability to budget for each fellowship year. Of course, any and all donations are appreciated. Income tax receipts are provided for identified donations and offerings.
Our Endowment Fund, based on legacy gifts and “in memoriam” donations, helps us to build a capital base, with interest available for specific projects.
