Thank you for making it possible to attend our Lutheran school!

“A Night for Kids” is LESA’s largest annual fundraising effort to support and sustain the future of Lutheran Christian education in the St. Louis Metro Area. Last year’s event raised $239,000 for need-based scholarships and educational resources such as STEM programs, professional development and curriculum guides.

This year’s event includes a live auction, scholarship fund-a-need, 50/50 drawing and special tributes to our Lutheran luminaries including the 500 Lutheran educators.

Since 2004, LESA has awarded more than $7.5 million in financial assistance to families of all faiths in St. Louis and southern Illinois. To help advance that mission, the Lutheran Legacy Foundation, one of three of our endowment partners, has pledged to provide a generous match for endowment gifts and pledges made at this event.
