Dear Friends,

2022 was full of donor generosity and with the work of our LFSW Team we had another record year completing $27.66 million in gift planner activity, representing an increase of nearly $4 million over 2021.

The total breakdown is as follows: $333,933 of current gifts developed and paid out in 2022;
$1.672 million of currently funded endowments, charitable trusts, and managed assets; and $20.94 million of legacy gifts. We also worked with congregations that invested over $4.71 million in the ELCA Ministry Growth Fund.


LFSW works to Recognize, Inspire, Facilitate, and Teach Legacy Stewardship.


As always we will listen to the charitable passions of the donor and the donors’ vision of how they want to help the ministries near and dear to their heart, and take care of their families. We will facilitate in their quest to create a meaningful legacy plan.

Thanks to our Donors who are changing the world, one legacy plan at a time.

Thanks to our strong Sponsors, Board of Trustees and staff, as we continue to grow and spread our ministry.
