Learn More About Gift Planning Today

Imagine a future in which your gifts—things like retirement accounts, your home or land—continue to leave a lasting impact upon the people you love, but also the congregation or ministries you care about most.

What is gift planning?

People often assume they don’t have the wealth to leave a significant bequest to their congregation, or to create an endowment for their LCMS school. However, in today’s world, thanks to retirement accounts, life insurance and equity in our homes, when we leave this earth, we often have greater blessings than we realized.

A gift plan structures how you leave those assets to your loved ones in a way that often minimizes the taxes on your estate, providing an opportunity to do more with the blessings God has provided. More specifically, a gift plan often helps you provide the same level of inheritance to your heirs while also allowing you to make a substantial gift to the ministry of your choice.
