Give your Time, Talent or Treasure to impact the lives of young people in the urban community.

Virtually all LUMIN Schools students participate in the Milwaukee and Racine Parental Choice Programs. Funds received through the MPCP and RPCP are generally sufficient to pay basic operating expenses like teacher salaries, classroom materials and building expenses. However, voucher funding does not cover the “extras.”  We are spiritually driven to bring more students and their families to know Jesus Christ and to be baptized into His welcoming arms. We rely on gifts and grants from friends of LUMIN Schools to support these important aspects of our ministry.
