Donations

You may make a gift by cash, check, money order, or by credit card. Lutheran Church Charities accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, American Express and PayPal. Please make checks and money orders payable to Lutheran Church Charities.

Honorary and Memorial Gifts

Honorary gifts are given in recognition of individuals or anniversaries or other special events. Memorial gifts are given to support the special ministries and commemorate the life accomplishments of individuals who have passed away.

You may give a gift in honor/memory of someone special online or by sending it to our offices. Simply state of whom you would like to give the gift in honor/memory. If you would like the person honored or the family of the deceased remembered to receive acknowledgment, please give contact information for us to send an acknowledgment.

Memorial and honorary gifts can be designated for a specific ministry or project or can be undesignated. They may also be set up as named endowments for ministry purposes. For more information, please contact Tim Hetzner, President of LCC at 866-455-6466. Honorary and Memorial Gifts Form

Electronic Funds Transfer

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans has programs that enable donors to contribute by electronic funds transfer. This ongoing, systematic and consistent giving can help sustain the organization by providing steady revenues. With electronic funds transfer, there are no lost or forgotten donations, the donor controls the frequency and amount of transfers, withdrawals and changes are made only with donor approval. Personal information is kept strictly confidential and there are no fees for the service.
Please contact Tim Hetzner, President of LCC at (866) 455-6466 for an application form for this program.

Matching Gifts

A corporate matching gift program can multiply the value of a gift to Lutheran Church Charities. These programs allow employees to direct their employer's charitable giving to the benefit of LCC. The human resources or employee benefits office should know if the company will match gifts. Donors may also qualify for a matching gift program from their former employer, their spouse's current or former employer or the company on whose board they serve.

Appreciated Securities

Gifts of appreciate stock, mutual funds or other securities are a quick, easy way to support Lutheran Church Charities. The donation of stock which has been held for more than one year will qualify for a deduction of the stock's entire market value and no capital gains taxes will be due.

For more information, please contact Tim Hetzner, President of LCC at 866-455-6466.

Real Estate

Gifts of appreciated real estate, such as undeveloped land, farms, or personal residences may be transferred by deed to Lutheran Church Charities with no liability for income or estate taxes on the appreciation. The donation of property owned more than one year will qualify for the deduction of the property's appraised value and no capital gains will be due.

For more information, please contact Tim Hetzner, President of LCC at 866-455-6466.

Tangible Personal Property

Tangible personal property includes assets that can be touched or moved, e.g., jewelry, rare coins, stamps, etc. A gift of tangible personal property to Lutheran Church Charities can generate a charitable tax deduction; however, there are IRS regulations regarding the deduction.

The property must be put to a use related to Lutheran Church Charities mission to qualify the full market value of the asset as a charitable deduction. Otherwise the deduction is limited to the cost of the asset.

For more information, please contact Tim Hetzner, President of LCC at 866-455-6466.

Special Projects
