Sustain and Grow Ministries of the ELCA
The ELCA Foundation exists to sustain and grow ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Through our nationwide network of professional gift planning staff, we assist members in their call to live as faithful and generous stewards. We also support and strengthen the ministry of congregations, agencies, and institutions through financial education, resources, support, and investment management services.
We will be a partner and the primary resource for ELCA members, congregations, and synods in generating transformational financial support for mission and ministry.
