Katie’s Fund is an important means of financial support within Women of the ELCA. Created in 1997, Katie’s Fund offers financial support for ministries and activities in three areas: leadership development, global connections, and living theology. Katie’s Fund was established as an endowment so that the principal in the fund remains untouched and only the earnings on the principal are used for the fund’s purpose.
“When I think about Katharina von Bora Luther, I can’t help but be inspired by how determined she was,” says Lisa Plorin, of Upham, N. Dak. “Her unwavering faith helped to raise up bold women in the church. By supporting Katie’s Fund, this tradition will continue for future generations.”
