A Ministry to the heartfelt legacies of donors, and a service to the internal and extended ministries of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church The Foundation of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church is a nonprofit organization and a separate 501(c)(3) from St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, established in 2000 to provide funds for religious and charitable needs outside the scope of the annual budget of the congregation.
