Take Your Pick //// Giving Options
There is no doubt! Everyone knows that Lutheran Women in Mission not only talk about giving to missions; they DO it! However, you may not know the many different options for your gifts.
The most familiar is the Mite Box available through your district. Children can also learn the joy of giving with their own Children's Mite Box, which comes with special thank you stickers. Order from the LWML catalog #15905.
Envelopes are another means to respond to God's love with your gifts. You'll find them in the Quarterly, and included with catalog orders and other correspondence. The envelope gives you the option of a mission offering or a gift to the LWML Endowment. Bulk pricing is available. LWML catalog #16090.
LWML Envelopes are also available as one selection for your church offering envelope boxes. Contact Concordia Publishing House for information.
The LWML Endowment Fund provides funds to enhance mission ministry into the future. Use this meaningful way of giving to express a special occasion, a memorial remembrance or celebration of family and friends or toward the LWML mission goal. To ensure continuing work for the Lord's Kingdom, call LWML headquarters at 1-800-252-5965 for more information.
Online or phone contributions are an efficient way to give. Go to www.lwml.org, click Contribute at the top of the home page, which takes you to a secure site. You may also phone 1-800-252-5965 and give via your credit card.
A Light That Endures (ALTE), a partnership with LCMS Foundation offers a way to leave a legacy of your love to the Lord through gift planning services and counselors who assist in bequests through wills and trusts, gift annuities, retirement plans, life insurance, and other charitable estate planning. For information, please call the LWML office at 1-800-252-5965.
Simply Giving® is an automated giving program from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans designed to help you conveniently and consistently contribute to LWML through electronic funds transfer from your checking or savings account.

Check with your local district to see if there are other options for giving. There are often special offerings for designated ministries at the local level.
