Making Lutheran Education Possible


The mission of the Lutheran Education Foundation (LEF) is to develop, manage and direct resources to support and promote LLSA schools, teachers and students.

THANK YOU to everyone that participated in online surveys and personal interviews with the Steier Group during the month of May 2016!  Click here for results.

  • Planned Giving - LEF nurtures relationships to develop planned gifts intended to help preserve the future of Lutheran Christian Education in the Lincoln community.
