A National Lutheran Program

Welcome to Impact1890—A National Lutheran Program. Beginning in 2018, the Community Impact grant program will have a new look. Continuing its commitment to making a positive impact on the broader community, the Board of Trustees authorized the establishment of Impact1890—A National Lutheran Program, a new organization with the sole function of awarding and managing grants awarded to community partners. As a part of the National Lutheran family, Impact1890 will continue to live out the original mission of NLCS of providing shelter, food, clothing, medical attention and “such other comforts as Christian” companionship may require – but in a new way, through partnerships with others.

We launched the Community Impact program five years ago and every year we have seen both change and growth in what our community partners, staff, volunteers, customers and residents are doing. Since 2014, we have worked with 40 non-profit organizations in our geographic territory to assist older adults through 68 grants totaling nearly $700,000 as we strive to serve ever more seniors.

The website is currently under construction. Please check back in the coming months to learn more as we continue to transition from Community Impact to Impact1890.

Questions should be directed to or 301-354-2703 and ask for Impact1890.
