If you're interested in serving LCMS members and ministries professionally, the LCMS Foundation is an especially great place to work. In addition to the rewards of working to support the Church, the LCMS Foundation was listed in 2018 as one of the best places to work in St. Louis by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Imagine a future in which your gifts continue to benefit your family and faith after you’re called to Heaven. A gift plan structures your assets in a way that often minimizes taxes and provides an opportunity to do more with the blessings God has provided.
Starting gift planning at your ministry can be simple. We partner with dozens of congregations, schools, RSOs and other ministries. Each year these partnerships result in nearly $150 million in future planned gifts to LCMS organizations.
We provide congregations, schools, RSOs, seminaries and universities with the expertise to invest their assets in a variety of market funds. With vision, these funds can provide long-term stability, helping fund your ministry for generations to come.
Your process provided us the means to shape a plan that is useful now and easily flexible for the future.
Mark & Kristine
As a pastor in the LCMS, my wife and I have always desired to be faithful stewards of God’s blessings. It was refreshing to work with the LCMS Foundation to see how we can make a substantial gift to the local congregation and seminary without impacting the inheritance to our children.
Pastor Nathan Janssen
The process provided us with an easy to use form to compose a gift letter that models for our children continued ministry support after our passing as well as a personal faith statement that will be given to our children and their families upon our passing.
Cam & Janet Fuerniss
We are thankful that we can leave a bequest to our children, and also through the Foundation’s work, make a gift to all the congregations we have served, our Concordias, and an agency we are passionate about.
