Give $500,000 to The Lutheran World Federation Endowment Fund
The goal of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) Endowment Fund is to ensure that we continue the good work the LWF has been doing since its founding in 1947. The Fund's capital is kept in perpetuity with annual earnings going to designated LWF ministries and projects.
The Fund helps ensure that the witness and ministry of the LWF is sustained and expanded for future generations - our family of over 72.2 million people does make a difference! Projects include:
- Advocacy for peace with justice
- Community development
- Ecumenical and interfaith relations
- Holistic mission
- Human rights
- Humanitarian assistance
The Fund currently has CHF $15 million and has a goal of reaching CHF $20 million by Reformation 2017.
Donations to the LWF Endowment Fund may be forwarded to the ELCIC as part of your offering (please note that it is designated to "LWF Endowment Fund).
Supporting the LWF Endowment Fund is a tangible way of joining with Lutherans around the world to share the good news that salvation is not for sale.
