Andrew Lutes Endowment

“Please join my family in supporting Gracepoint’s critical services for children through the Andrew Lutes Endowment. If the support we can generate from this endowment can save the life of just ONE child, then somehow, someway Andrew’s death makes more sense. On behalf of the entire Lutes family, I thank you for your consideration.” – Bill Lutes
