The NT-NL Mission Endowment Fund (MEF) seeks to support mission projects in the Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana (NT-NL) Synod. It works much like a foundation: an endowment fund serves as its core; the principal is invested and only the income from the investment is expended annually to benefit special causes that might otherwise go unfunded and unrealized. Grants are awarded on an annual basis. Just under one million dollars has been awarded in the 25-year history!
The 2021 Mission Endowment FUNd-raiser will premiere at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 16, with the theme, Gifted and Giving…. How Grace Works! Heartfelt, inspiring video stories contributed by gifted people from across our Synod are available for viewing here: https://giftedandgiving.org/.
Seeds That Change contributions are now being accepted: https://giftedandgiving.org/donate/
THANK YOU to our donors so far! (as of October 15)
2022 Grant Applications are now available and due October 31. You may access that information here: https://www.ntnl.org/ministries/mef/grant-application/.
