The Lutheran Welfare Trust was created to contribute towards the support or establishment of welfare projects primarily within the Lutheran Church. This Trust is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient, and as an Income Exempt Charitable Entity.
The Trust was established to provide relief to those who are in necessitous circumstances, which according to the Commissioner of Taxation definition, involves some degree of poverty. To the extent possible, the Trustees take a broad approach to this definition, although the Trustees must still be bound by the description. Careful consideration should be given to this definition in the application for funds.
Over recent years the Trust has distributed significant funds to organizations within the Victorian District, for aged care and refugee support projects.
The Trustees are particularly seeking a person with legal expertise to join the team. Please contact Hilton Haeusler at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
