The "Always a Warrior" Endowment Fund was established in 2014 with a generous gift from the Lutheran Legacy Foundation. The goal of the Endowment Fund is to provide a long-term income stream to be used for special purchases, projects, and initiatives that enhance the athletic experience at Wisconsin Lutheran College. In addition to their initial investment, LLF will match 20% of all gifts to the fund.
How is money from the Endowment Fund used?
Earnings from the Endowment Fund will provide ongoing financial support for athletic programs, teams, equipment, and facility needs. These monies will impact the WLC athletic experience above and beyond operational budgets and will be allocated at the discretion of the Director of Athletics.
