Since 2015, the Immanuel Vision Foundation has provided financial support to nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations whose missions align with our own. More specifically, those that:
“Meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of seniors,
respond to needs in community health and support the ministry of the Church.”
The Immanuel Vision Foundation has two annual grant cycles. The spring community grant cycle (February 15 - March 15) is open to any organization that meets the criteria detailed below. Nebraska Synod and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) affiliated organizations eligible to apply for the fall church-related grant cycle (August 1 - September 30) are notified via eligibility letter. Please note: congregations of other denominations, churches located outside of the Immanuel Vision Foundation eligibility area and religious nonprofits are ineligible to apply during the fall grant cycle.
The Immanuel Vision Foundation fall grant cycle is open from August 1 - September 30, 2023. All eligible Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregations in Nebraska and select counties in Iowa and Nebraska Synod-affiliated organizations were sent an invitation letter. If you believe your congregation or organization should be eligible to apply and you did not receive a letter - please contact 402.829.6959 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
