Balance Personal Finances and Gifting Plan

Balance your stewardship commitment to the church and the wise management of the gifts God has bestowed upon you and your family with an LCEF gift annuity. This approach offers you a way to help expand the Kingdom while thinking of your future.


Donate Your LCEF Investment Interest

You may contribute all or part of the interest earned on your LCEF investments to LCMS ministries close to your heart. Your gifted interest will be sent directly to the ministry of your choice for a specific period of time. LCEF investors may fill out this form to get started; if you are not yet an investor but wish to be, visit our Investment section.


Become a Builders' Circle Member

Builders' Circle is focused on caring for and nurturing the relationship between LCEF and its supporters. The gifts received enable LCEF to help LCMS organizations and rostered church workers share His message with more people, all working together in Christ's name. As a member you will get to know the ways LCEF and its partners touch lives and reach out to those in need.

Read the latest Building Together in Christ newsletter, which you will receive as a member. You can also see how gifts to LCEF are designated and read about the people and ministries impacted by gifts in the Builders' Circle activity for fiscal year 2013.


Direct Your Gift to LCEF Ministry

Gifts given directly to LCEF make it possible for us to keep costs low on loans and services, and help LCMS organizations maximize their resources for ministry. We offer two convenient methods for contributing: you may set up an automatic deduction through your bank or you may send your check to LCEF.

Support a Specific LCEF Ministry

Maybe you, your family or church community have been touched by one of the many specific ministry programs within LCEF. Gifts may be designated to a select ministry (for example, Haake World Ministry, rostered church worker loans or Laborers For Christ). Just as with any direct gift, you have a choice in how that gift may be made as well as the program for which it is used.


Give through LCMS' Online Tool

Gifting is an important part of your overall stewardship plan and we strive to make it as easy as possible. Contributions made by credit or debit card via the LCMS Online Giving tool provide an easy, convenient and safe process to support:
