Families say “Thank You” for tuition assistance from ILSTO!

$758,000 raised in 2018 for tuition assistance for 2019-2020

The Iowa Lutheran STO is in the midst of its fifteenth campaign to aid elementary and secondary
students in Lutheran schools for the 2020-21 school year. This current year, 2019, ILSTO hopes to raise
$850,000 which will be used to help students for the 2020-21 school year. Many students are attending
Lutheran schools in Iowa due to the STO program. A total of $758,000 in contributions was collected
in 2018 for tuition assistance for qualifying families of Lutheran school students for the 2019-20.
Applications for tuition assistance are now being taken with an application deadline of May 3, 2019.

Here’s what some of our parents had to say about ILSTO and Lutheran education:

“The school & church are very beneficial to our family
and an important part of our 1st grader’s education.
Thank you ILSTO.”

“This program has been a great assistance to us in
making a Christian education available to our girls”

“It would not be possible for me to send my son to
Trinity without the help from ILSTO. We value this
school and the education they offer.
