PALM Missions

PALM supports missions of our LCMS congregations in the Pittsburgh area. Here’s a list of them. We also support our area Lutheran schools. For a mission grant application please click here. The Board’s guidelines for applying for grants include  that the applying organization not ask for more than 50% of the money available in that grant cycle, as well as not more than 50% of their project budget. A balanced budget is also required to be included with the application; this is intended to inform us how you intend to pay for all of your project’s expenses during the current year.
