Fraternals pledge $1 million to seminary fund

Two Lutheran fraternal life insurance organizations announced a $1 million pledge to support an ELCA leadership development initiative. Aid Association for Lutherans and Lutheran Brotherhood will each grant the Fund for Leaders in Mission $500,000 over three years.

Approved at the ELCA's 1997 Churchwide Assembly, the fund is a joint project of the ELCA Division for Ministry, the ELCA Foundation and the eight ELCA seminaries. The goal of the fund, when fully endowed, is to provide full tuition support for the projected 1,400 students annually enrolled in ELCA seminaries.

LB and AAL are the largest fraternal benefit societies in the United States. In the past 10 years the member-owned, not-for-profit insurance organizations have given more than $1 billion to a broad range of charitable and benevolent programs, including support of Lutheran institutions.
