Just as everyone has different goals and needs, we offer a variety of different options to structure your gift plan. Each option has its respective strengths and variables, and each can be of benefit to someone if applied thoughtfully, and with guidance.
Starting a gift plan program for your ministry can be simple and the rewards great. We have partnerships with dozens of LCMS congregations, schools, RSOs and even our seminaries. Each year these partnerships result in $125 to $150 million in future planned gifts for LCMS organizations.
Gift planning has many options that may seem overwhelming. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you start considering the ways that gift planning can make a positive impact to your ministry or your personal stewardship.
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.
Edward & Janet Krauss
We developed a plan that creates security for ourselves and our young son while furthering the work done by the church and others. Your process provided us the means to shape a plan that is useful now and easily flexible for the future.
Mark & Kristine
It was with great joy that we were able to work on our legacy for Lutheran ministries. The LCMS Foundation helped us to formulate a plan to ensure that a portion of the gifts God has given us would be used to bless others.
Charlotte & Roy
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.
