FRIENDS of Luther Seminary

Providing support since 1940

FRIENDS of Luther Seminary is a group of people from Twin Cities-area congregations who support and minister to the seminary through prayer, financial gifts and volunteering. Its governing board meets six times a year.

The FRIENDS are looking for new board members. Meetings are held on the second Friday of every other month. This is a great way to be involved with the seminary and meet new friends.


The FRIENDS of Luther Seminary sponsor three annual events:

  • Spring Luncheon and program: A fundraising brunch featuring inspiring speakers from the arts community.

  • Singing the Faith: A service of hymns and readings celebrating the Lutheran Reformation.

  • Winter Luncheon and program: A fundraising luncheon featuring lectures from Luther Seminary professors.


The FRIENDS of Luther Seminary have provided support to seminary students since 1940. The FRIENDS Endowed Scholarship, formally established in 1988, is awarded to two U.S. and two international students each year.

The purpose of the FRIENDS Endowed Scholarship fund is to give financial support to students. The annual distribution from this fund is to be awarded to deserving student(s) as determined by the Financial Aid Office in accordance with policies and practices of Luther Seminary.

Be a volunteer

In addition to financial support for students, the FRIENDS of Luther Seminary volunteer on Wednesday and work on a variety of projects -- everything from stuffing envelopes and packets to making party favors. It's a great way to stay involved with the seminary and enjoy the cheerful company of good friends.
