Giving for Today

You have joyfully answered the call to live as a faithful steward and generously support the ministries of the ELCA. You have experienced God’s abundance and want to share his love with others. The ELCA offers a variety of ways you can give to the mission and ministry that means the most to you.

We can discuss, without cost or obligation, the following topics:
  • Why you need a will and when to review it
  • How beneficiary designations can provide for loved ones
  • How a planned gift can provide current or deferred, tax-free income for life
  • How planned giving can be used to help teach your children good stewardship habits
  • Discover how you can use retirement assets to fund a significant gift to ministry and leave more of your estate to family
  • Learn new ideas for using non-cash assets to help increase your current gifts to your congregation or churchwide ministries.
Call today to learn how you can make a gift through:
  • Life insurance plans
  • Retirement plans
  • Real estate
  • Appreciated securities
  • Mutual funds
  • IRA charitable rollover
  • Stock certificates
  • Memorial endowments 
We make it easy for you to support what really matters the most: The examples and information provided on this website are for illustrative and educational purposes only and should not be considered tax or legal advice.
