The Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Endowment Fund was established circa 1980 to be used for outreach and benevolence programs; retirement of long term Church debt; continuing education of pastors and members; and capital improvements and equipment purchases for the Church.

For the health and benefit of the congregation and the community at large, the Endowment Fund supports a Parish Nurse. Our nurse listens to and counsels members about health issues; she integrates wellness of body, mind, and spirit into healthy lifestyle; she facilitates health related committees and support groups; she educates our community about health concerns. Sharon Head is currently our Parish Nurse.
Trinity’s Garden Song Day Camp is an annual summer day camp open to all community families. The camp runs one week each summer and is focused on Trinity Gardens, giving children opportunities to harvest food and learn about sustainability. Activities include storytelling, music, craft activities, games, food and so much more. It is a great way to educate children in our congregation as well as introducing our church to the greater Santa Barbara community. The Endowment Fund helps with operation costs of running this fun day camp by offering Trinity members discounts and/or scholarships to deserving families in our community.
