ILSTO – Update

This year $67,902 in tuition assistance was awarded to IGLLS students through the Iowa Lutheran School Tuition Organization. Over $765,000 was awarded to Lutheran students in Iowa. We would like to increase those amounts for 2023-2024, but we cannot without your help. Donations are currently at 20% of our 2022 goal.  Now is the time to contribute for the next school year so we can continue this great program. The benefits you receive are two-fold: 1) You get to see more children experiencing the love of God every day, and 2) You will receive a 75% tax credit on your Iowa state income taxes and a charitable deduction on your Federal return. At this time $49,650 has been designated for IGLLS. For further information, please contact Dewey Torkelson at 712-260-2991. You will find a donor form at
