In 1959, Grace Lutheran Church received a legacy from the M.B. (Barney) and Myrtle Syverson Estate in the amount of $360,000. In order to use this gift in the most effective and beneficial way, church leaders incorporated the Grace Lutheran Foundation as a non-profit organization. The Foundation’s original mission was to assist seniors with healthcare, housing and other services that would help them maintain independent living.
From the vision and generosity of our original benefactors, Barney and Myrtle Syverson, Grace Lutheran Foundation has grown to touch the lives of more than 500 individuals every day as the area’s only faith-based, not-for-profit healthcare organization providing these services.
Unwavering in our mission “…to enhance human dignity and growth…” we continue to compassionately care for those who cannot care for themselves, relying on the dedication of our staff, the trust of our clients, and the grace of God to extend dignity and respect to all regardless of age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, or disability.Grace Lutheran Foundation Board of Directors 2015-2017
