Results Innovation Lab

Join us in achieving our Moonshot Goal to dramatically improve the trajectory of the lives of 20,000 vulnerable children in America by 2024. The Results Innovation Lab creates space for new solutions to surface, and the opportunity to scale innovations that will disrupt the status quo for youth who otherwise might become another statistic. Funding for this vital, multi-year initiative makes it possible to engage faculty, utilize technical expertise, and provide scholarships for Lab participants to work toward achieving this most worthwhile Moonshot Goal. The donation you make today could make the defining difference in a child’s future.

Realizing the Promise

In July 2017, Lutheran Services in America launched Realizing the Promise, a three-year special fundraising campaign with a goal to raise $500,000 by June 30, 2020. This campaign is dedicated to addressing the urgent needs of the millions of people who rely on the services we provide. Today we’re inviting partners to join us in advancing innovative solutions to some of the most complex health and social challenges we face as a nation—and to stand with us as we advocate for the Americans whose health and well-being are at greatest risk.

Neighbor-to-Neighbor Fund

Lutheran Services in America standing annual fund provides the flexible funding we need to boldly respond to the needs of the network today. Your gift fuels our daily work to advocate in Washington on behalf of our members, share knowledge across the network, develop our leaders, and engage partners and develop funding opportunities the network needs to transform the lives of people and communities.
