Planned Giving

Opening Doors, Sharing Opportunities
At Lutheran Church Extension Fund, we exist for the sole purpose of empowering ministries in Kingdom work. Our goal each day is to "open doors," sharing resources so that more people will hear and believe, be baptized and grow in the Word, joining together in God's saving grace and eternal life.

Planning for your legacy is an important process for you and your family. Our gift planning consultants offer valuable ideas for planning for the future and potentially receiving benefits such as tax savings and life income. Also, you can get helpful personal planning tips and ideas for organizing your finances and estate.
