Provide Long-Term Stability for Emmanuel and Our Ministries
Planned giving refers to gifts made either during a donor’s lifetime or as a “legacy” or charitable estate gift, effective upon the donor’s death.
Planned gifts may be either designated for deposit into the ELC Endowment Fund or made directly to Emmanuel Lutheran Church.
In 2020, the ELC Endowment Fund was established for the purpose of encouraging planned gifts to provide sustained, long-term support for Emmanuel and its various ministries.
Faith Grows Here
We emerge from this year of much loss, knowing we have a shared vision that Emmanuel, and the ministries we support, are more important than ever. We needed worship. We needed to check in with each other. We need our congregation to remain strong and vibrant.
Our goal for the Emmanuel 2021 Commitment is to increase congregational giving by by $186,000 compared to 2020 and to have every household make a commitment.
Other Ways to Give
Cash is still king (yes, even in this technology age!) but there are other ways you can support Emmanuel’s mission.
If you have appreciated stock in your portfolio but don’t want to pay capital gains, you can gift a portion of the stock to Emmanuel as a charitable donation.
Qualified Charitable Contributions
If you are at least 70-1/2 years old by December 31 and own a traditional (non-Roth) IRA, you can make a Qualified Charitable Contribution to Emmanuel to help you hit your Required Minimum Distribution each year.
Thrivent Choice Dollars
