Dear Friends,

2020 threw several challenges at us, and with the help of God and our Lutheran Foundation of the Southwest team, we were able to overcome and redefine “normal” and have another record breaking year.

We did over $20.48 million of legacy planning, an increase of $1.96 million over 2019. The total breakdown is as follows:

$164,575 of current gifts developed and paid out in 2020; $2.62 million of currently funded endowments, charitable trusts, and managed assets; and $15.58 million of legacy gifts. We also worked with congregations that invested over $2.1 million in the ELCA Fund A investment 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.
