Support your favorite ministry today, tomorrow, and forever.
Ensure that your favorite ministry will be around for your children. And your children's children.
For over a hundred years the ELCA and its predecessor churchbodies have endowed future ministries through memorial endowment funds. The ELCA Endowment Fund includes over a thousand funds that benefit all types of ministry expressions (congregations, local ministries, synod-wide ministries, colleges and universities, seminaries, and churchwide ministries). Fund it today or tomorrow.
Establish a memorial endowment fund in your name or in memorial of loved ones and support ministry forever. Memorial endowment funds may be funded with current outright gifts or by testamentary beneficiary designations of charitable remainder gifts, wills, life insurance or qualified retired plans.
