Learn More About Endowments Today

Would you like to leave a lasting impact on the LCMS ministries you care about most? Imagine being able to help countless future families afford a Lutheran education, or being able to continue making offerings to your congregation, long after you’re called home to Heaven.

By adding a personal endowment to your will or estate plan, or by creating one while you’re alive, you can turn the financial gifts you’ve been given into a consistent, perpetual source of funding for your favorite ministries.

What is a personal endowment fund?

Endowments can be funded now, or upon death as part of your estate plan, for as little as $25,000. Once funded, the LCMS Foundation invests the funds and distributes a portion of their earnings each year to the ministry or purpose of your choice. Endowments can even be named after your family or a loved one and can generally be structured to operate just as you wish.
