Investment
Philosophy

The KMLHS Foundation board has adopted an investment philosophy that seeks modest returns with minimal risk. This balanced approach allows the Foundation board to provide funding for tuition assistance and other ministry projects.

The Foundation board continually reviews this philosophy and ensures that the investments are consistent with the guidelines that have been established.

History

The Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School Foundation was incorporated as a unique entity in 2001, and is responsible for managing the KMLHS Foundation endowment fund.

The Foundation's endowment fund has historically been a major source of tuition assistance for families who enroll children at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School. As the fund has grown over the years, the amount of tuition assistance has also increased.

The board is authorized to use a small portion of the annual income for other ministry projects as they deem appropriate.

Distributions

Each year, the KMLHS Foundation board calculates the amount of income that will be distributed for tuition assistance and possibly other projects. The board typically authorizes an annual distribution of 5% of the fund's assets.
