Ensuring the ELCA's Long-Term Success

Your life is a light in this world. With a planned gift in place to support the ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) that have meant the most to you, your light will continue to shine for years and years to come.

When you create a planned giving commitment to benefit the ELCA or one of its ministries, you automatically become a member of the Legacy Society of the ELCA. This society exists to connect, inspire and thank our most faithful supporters. When you become a member of the Legacy Society, you join with other passionate and dedicated members of this church who are committed to ensuring its future. You’ll receive updates and invitations just for members, as well as ongoing, personal support from your regional gift planner.

Ready to leave your legacy? We’re here to help. Contact your regional gift planner for information or to begin creating your planned gift.

And if you've a already made the generous decision to support the church in your estate plan, please let us know!
