Most people, when they prayerfully consider their annual
stewardship pledge, take into account their annual income
and take-home pay. But, many people do not think about
giving back to God in the same way when they receive a
financial windfall. We all have plenty of plans for that
extra money – and so does God. Won’t you take
a moment and consider making a planned gift to First Lutheran
A planned gift is one that is well thought out by a donor
in response to the many blessings God has given them.
A planned gift differs from our normal stewardship giving
in that it is usually of a larger amount and is either
a one-time or less frequently given (e.g., annual) gift.
Likewise, a planned gift is different than a restricted
or endowment gift in that it is not designated for a specific
purpose – it is available for the Church to use
in helping to accomplish our mission.
Many types of assets can be used to make planned gifts
– cash, securities that have appreciated in value,
IRA assets, life insurance, real estate, certain personal
property – almost all of which will provide you
with significant tax advantages.
