Spreading the word about why gift planning is important to your congregation or ministry organization is crucial. We're pleased to provide some of templates and other tools you need to succeed.
Below, you'll find monthly articles and smaller blurbs you can use within your church bulletin or ministry newsletter. And, if you have a gift planning partnership with the Foundation, you can request information on how we can help you create customized brochures and other marketing materials that you can print to help get the word out about your gift planning program or ministry endowment.
We offer resources that will help you promote gift planning within your congregation or ministry organization. These can be printed as third-sheet inserts or the text files can be used within your own templates. To download the most recent bulletin and newsletter inserts, click here.

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.
