God’s work never stops. Churchwide office staff are still hard at work – from our homes. Hours and lines of communication remain the same.

“Our congregation made a courageous decision to create an endowment fund with the assistance of the Lutheran Foundation of the Southwest and the ELCA Foundation. We were blessed with a gift from long-time members, and the fund stayed intact and endured despite massive destruction from a hurricane and the need for funds to assist with restoration.”

“My first husband’s parents’ estate left something to each of their sons and each of their five grandchildren. Thanks to the ELCA Foundation, I can do something similar for my children and grandchildren, while also supporting several causes and organizations that have been important to me and my family.”
