Other Ways to Financially Support our Mission Grants

1) Goodsearch –

Use this site as your search engine and/or for your shopping and you’ll be earning a penny per search or a percentage of your purchase for mites. Click on “Find a cause to support” and type in LWML, select “Lutheran Womens Missionary League” with the St. Louis, Missouri, address. Continue your search or shopping.

2) AmazonSmile

LWML is listed among many other charities to receive 0.5% of your “eligible” purchases. Follow these easy instructions to also support our mites:

  1. Go to to log in to your Amazon account.
  2. Select your charity by clicking on “Your Account” in the upper right corner of the site page. (LWML is listed with the St. Louis, Missouri, address. There are many Lutheran groups listed.)
  3. Click the yellow “Select” button and begin shopping!

Once you have set this up, every time you log in to, 0.5% of your “eligible” purchases will be donated to LWML. Once each quarter the accumulated donations are transferred to the LWML’s bank account.

3) Donate Your Change

LWML would like to announce a new way to give called Donate Your Change. Think of it as an electronic Mite Box.

Donate Your Change is a quick and easy app that rounds up your spare change to the nearest dollar what you don’t spend on a regular purchase. How it works is you connect your preferred card to the app, make a purchase with that card, as normal, and invest your change in your organization(s) of choice. For example, after setting up my preferences and securely linking my credit card to the app, I buy a coffee and spend $3.80. Donate Your Change automatically donates the remaining twenty cents to my organization of choice (LWML). It easily makes giving a part of your lifestyle, without making any changes to your lifestyle. There is no cost in setting up the app. Anyone with a debit or credit card can set it up. The user is in control of how much money is rounded up to be donated and in control of where the money goes.

Donate Your Change went through a security screening process in order to be approved for integration and to access bank and credit card companies by Cigital, Inc., a leading software security and quality consulting firm. So, you know your financial information is encrypted, private, and secured.
