Double Your Impact With Matching Grant

Year End Match GrantThree VERY generous donors (who wish to remain anonymous) have issued a match challenge for Grace Church members and friends from now through the end of December. They have designated a combined amount of $6,000 that they will match if we come up to that amount as well. That would generate a total of $12,000 to help Grace Lutheran to meet its year-end budget obligations.

If you would like to make an additional gift to help meet this goal, donors can make checks out to “Grace Lutheran Church” and mark envelopes and/or the memo line of checks with the word “Match.”  Your donation can be placed in the offering plate along with your weekly offering or mailed to us (1500 6th St NE, Minneapolis MN  55413), or you can donate online by clicking here.
