About Impact1890

In 2014, the Board of Trustees of National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) authorized the establishment of a grant-making program to award funding to other non-profit organizations that provide services primarily to underserved seniors. Since that time, over $1 million in grants have been made to more than 50 organizations; in 2018 alone, 8,400 seniors were assisted in some way through Impact1890. Learn more about how Impact1890, in partnership with our grant recipients, are extending impact to seniors aging in place throughout Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, D.C..

Impact1890 is named to signify the unique contribution this program will make to the organizations and people it affects and, to celebrate and honor the foresight of those who established the first National Lutheran community in 1890.

Continuing to find inspiration in the foundation and growth of NLCS, along with the guidance of its Board of Directors and leadership – Impact1890 will continue to support and collaborate with community partners who are serving seniors aging in place throughout Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
