Thanks to Thrivent & the Lutheran Scholarship Granting organization (SGO)
Immanuel became a member of The Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization of Indiana (SGO) in 2013 shortly after Mr. Bachman became principal. Over the last five years, Immanuel has been able to award nearly $300,000.00 in scholarships to hundreds of students whose families would not otherwise be able to afford an Immanuel education.
The Lutheran SGO’s home office is in Fort Wayne, and lives out their slogan of “Making the dream of a Lutheran education a reality for Indiana families” through the following mission and vision statements:
Mission: The Lutheran SGO of Indiana exists to raise funds from individuals and businesses to provide scholarship funds to all eligible students wanting to attend an Indiana Lutheran school.
Vision: The Lutheran SGO of Indiana will ensure that all eligible families in Indiana have the opportunity to attend the Lutheran school of their choice. Our efforts will support enrollment growth and Christian outreach to families.
With contributions to The Lutheran SGO of Indiana, donors can help fund scholarships—and receive a special state tax benefit. Employer matching funds can also help increase scholarship potential. In fact, Thrivent Financial employees have successfully donated $54,000 (which were matched 100%) to benefit Lutheran schools. Thrivent continues to be a blessing to Immanuel.
We're glad you're here!
At Immanuel, we believe that you can be transformed by experiencing life with God in Christ. Our mission is to equip people for this kind of transformation by connecting people with Christ in a life of worship, learning, and service, whether you are exploring Christianity for the first time or grew up attending church.
