Mission Endowment Fund

Leave a Legacy for Ministry – Gifts that Nurture the Whole Church


The Mission Endowment Fund at Lord of Life Lutheran Church was established in 2004 with the purpose of providing grants and benevolence gifts for mission work beyond the general benevolence giving of the Congregation.

Distribution of Funds

Priorities for distribution to organizations are: 1) Lutheran, 2) faith-based, and 3) charitable — whose purpose is to provide for human needs. In 2022, a total of $101,423 was donated to seven organizations, most notably $47,040 for scholarships for three incoming Seminary students at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary.  The Mission Endowment Committee receives the grant requests and recommends the approved mission projects to the Congregational Council for final approval and distribution of the funds.

Share Your Blessings

By making a gift to our Mission Endowment Fund you give a gift that can keep on giving. Our Mission Endowment Fund is professionally managed so that the growth of our Endowment Fund can fund various grants and charitable contributions for years to come.

You can leave a legacy to Lord of Life through:

  • Bequest or Trust Distribution
  • Life Insurance Proceeds
  • Assignment of CDs, Bonds, and Bank Accounts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Beneficiary Designation or Tax-free Distribution from an IRA or other qualified retirement plan
  • Gifts 

Your Legacy

As part of your own financial planning, you have thought about distributions from your estate to family members, universities, charitable organizations and others. But, have you thought about what you want to leave to your church?

The gift from God is eternal life for all who believe. Your legacy gift will help Lord of Life support God's mission in perpetuity.

Please contact a member of the  Endowment Committee if you have questions or would like to discuss making a gift.
