Ed Richter impacted many lives during the years he worked at Lutheran High North, starting in 1989. His Christ-like service was evident in his work as a dedicated Lutheran educator. After he retired in 2002, he was still actively involved at LHN and served as a substitute teacher, bus driver, coach, mentor, lawn mower, and maintenance man until his death in 2014.He was a disciple of Christ and will be remembered as husband, father, grandfather, teacher, friend, colleague, coach, principal, athletic director, and mentor.
He began his ministry in education in Taylor, Michigan in 1963, moved to Houston, Texas, in 1967 and served as a teacher and then principal at Our Savior Lutheran School. In 1989 he began serving at Lutheran High North.
In his strong desire to help students attend LHN, Ed Richter personally started a scholarship fund, the Edgar Roy Richter Endowment Scholarship Fund, which is used for our tuition assistance program. If you'd like to honor his legacy, consider a gift to this scholarship fund.
Many corporations match gifts to charitable institutions such as LEAH Schools, thereby doubling or tripling a gift to the school. Check with your employer’s Human Resources department to determine if a matching gift program is available to you, and to obtain the documentation necessary to initiate the match.
In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities. If you will be transferring stock or other securities to LEAH Schools, please notify Pamela Collins at (281) 617-5189 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Planning your future? How do you want to leave your legacy? Consider including LEAH Schools in your estate and financial plans.
Education is a legacy and all three of our schools, Lutheran South (LSA), Lutheran High North (LHN), and Westlake Prep are a vital part of that legacy. Since 1949, many committed alumni, parents, trustees, and friends have supported their respective school to advance the Lutheran Education Association of Houston (LEAH) and provide for the future. Some have made gifts during their lifetime; now they all have the option to provide for our schools through a planned gift.
Planned giving can involve making charitable gifts through your estate plans and may result in favorable financial benefits for you or your estate. LEAH Schools welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements. These plans can:
The most common type of planned gift is a bequest in your will or trust. We accept many types of planned gifts and assets including cash, securities, real estate, retirement plans, life insurance policies, and others. If you have decided to include LEAH Schools in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by us, and include you as a member of the LEAH Schools Legacy Society.
