DIEFENTHALER FOUNDATION GRANTS
The Diefenthaler Foundation for Professional Church Workers was established in August 1983
as a testimonial to † Mark Diefenthaler and his ministry as Director of Christian Education at
Christ Lutheran. Scholarships from the fund are available to students preparing for full-time
church work.
The Diefenthaler Foundation Fund for Pre-School/Grade School Children was established in
July, 2020, as an addendum to the original Diefenthaler Foundation for Professional Church
Workers. The purpose of this addendum is to provide CLC member families scholarships to
help offset the cost of “member v. non-member” tuition rates to a recognized Missouri Synod
Lutheran School of their choice while still wishing to remain members of CLC. Scholarship
money is available for member families with children in pre-school through 6th grade.
Applications for each are available in the Church Office and are due by June 30. Applicants
must reapply every year. For more information, contact the Church Office at 708-349-0431.
