henry luce foundation

For more than 80 years, the Henry Luce Foundation has invested in knowledge makers and ensured that their work informs public discussion. This commitment to public knowledge derives from our founder: Henry R. Luce created Time magazine to disseminate the most important news, ideas, analysis, and criticism to a mass audience.

Today, the Luce Foundation carries on this work by supporting projects at universities, policy institutes, media organizations, and museums, among many others. What these organizations have in common is a commitment to putting knowledge in the hands of the individuals and communities that need access to it. Hundreds of organizations have received more than 5800 grants totaling more than $1 billion since the Foundation’s establishment in 1936.

Community/Fellowship. Learning/Wisdom. Faith. Worship. Family.

These Core Behavioral Values (CBV’s) were discerned as the most commonly held among our membership through congregational gatherings and small group conversations. Each of these five values reveals something crucial to our identity as a distinct community of faith. Each of these will be further shaped and deepened by our God-given vision and mission.
