LLL is committed to bringing the word of God to life. Importantly, that includes supporting schools to be able to educate students and assist them in gaining a Lutheran education through the provision of the LLL School Bursary Grants, when they might have in the past been precluded due to financial hardship.
Over a seven-year period, 2021 to 2027, LLL School Bursary Grants will continue to assist students in gaining a Lutheran Education within our school system by committing $1 million across this period. This figure includes the one-off payment of $150,000, which was provided to Lutheran Education Australia districts to assist families impacted by COVID-19 financial hardship, ensuring we were able to reach more people and ensure they could continue to access a Lutheran education in 2022.
Education isn’t always about classroom activities. Getting out, mixing with peers and building fellowship is just as important.
LLL awarded $75,000 for Camping Ministry Grants at the beginning of 2022, taking our total provided to Christian Life Week camps over the past three years to $225,000.
The grants were aimed at giving young people the opportunity to attend Christian camps for the first time and to financially assist returning patrons, allowing more young people to connect with each other in fellowship and rejoice in the word of God.
During periods of COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns impacting young people Australia-wide, it was a testament to the resilience of camp organisers who continued to provide a camp experience when people couldn’t attend in-person, by pivoting their program to an online format. These connections and the commitment to holding camps allowed campers to connect with peers and the word of our Lord and Saviour.
The LLL prides itself on providing savings accounts that are simple to operate, with a variable interest rate and no fees or charges. The LLL has a variety of savings accounts: personal and joint accounts; guardian accounts for children; and business accounts, including for self-managed super funds and not-for-profit organisations.
As an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI), the LLL is regulated under the Banking Act and by APRA.
