The LCMS Foundation was established in 1958 by a group of Lutherans as a stewardship ministry of the Church, dedicated to the belief that this new organization would, “be a vehicle which can, and under the blessing of God’s will, usher in a completely new era for our church.” Their historic mission was articulated in their 1959 Report to the forty-fourth regular convention of the Synod:

“ … to do good, to be rich in good deeds and to be generous and willing to share … so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” 1 Timothy 6:18-19

Since that awe-filled beginning, thousands of inspired stewards, joyful in their thanks to God…people like you…have used the LCMS Foundation to plan and manage gifts that benefit their families, congregations and ministries worldwide!
