    EDUCATION TRUSTAn endowment is a financial instrument

    established to distribute recurring

    income to ministry. Endowments are

    funded by gifts of various forms of assets

    such as real estate, appreciated securities

    or cash. !The Let Love Live On Endowment was

    established to provide a steady flow of

    income from the invested principal of the

    fund to support the needs of the

    congregation, specifically for special

    projects of Christian education, mission

    and ministry. !Trinity Lutheran Education Trust

    supports the capital needs of Trinity

    Lutheran School and Early Childhood.

    In addition it provides tuition assistance

  • Trinity Lutheran Church has a rich history directly tied to serving the people of the Klein community. The original German settlers were farmers who grew tired of traveling by horse and wagon to the nearest Lutheran Church in Rosehill. The long trip forced them to leave their farms, animals and livelihoods behind. In 1874, Trinity Lutheran Church was chartered. Many of the original family names are still recognizable in the Klein communityKlein, Theiss, Kaiser, Lemm, Benfer, Brill, Wunderlich, Strack, Brautigam, Roth, Hassler, Krahn, Haude, and Kleb. Youll notice these names on schools throughout the Klein Independent School District. !The original Texas land grant of 160 acres had a one-room public school building which served as both a house of worship and school. For many years, Trinity was a rural, agriculturally-based congregation. In the early 1960s, the growth rate increased rapidly with suburban sprawl. The current campus is about 30 acres, with additional facilities built according to a carefully developed long-term plan with intentional debt retirement. From our origin as the social and spiritual center of Klein, Trinity remains dedicated to serving the Klein community.

    The Let Love Live On Endowment Fund and Trinity Lutheran Education Trust were established to provide alternative funding for special projects where funding is otherwise unavailable. They

    help insure the viability of Trinitys ministries for the future children and grandchildren of Trinitys members. They will provide ongoing support for the development and growth of

    Christian education, missions and ministries of Trinity Lutheran.

    LET LOVE LIVE ON The Let Love Live On Endowment Fund was established in 1996 with the purpose of being used for special projects of Christian education, mission and ministry in the congregation or for support of the work of the Church at large, but is not used for normal congregational budgetary expenditures.

    !EDUCATION TRUST The Trinity Lutheran Education Trust was established in 1988 with the purpose of supporting Christian education at Trinity Lutheran School and Early Childhood Center, and to expand the education facilities of the school and enhance the buildings, grounds and equipment. Since this trust was established, it has given over $135,000 to Trinity Lutheran School for capital improvements and to Trinity Lutheran School students for tuition assistance.
