The Second Century Fund

Since 1958, generosity has moved the ministries of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS) in ways only the Lord knew. This past year, generosity provided more than $62 million for more than 508 local and national LCMS ministries. The LCMS Foundation provides the oversight that assures your generosity accomplishes the stewardship goals God has placed in your heart.

The Foundation also assists the Synod’s congregations, colleges, universities, and seminaries by investing their monies for ministry growth. We teach pastors and other administrators how to develop stewardship plans within their own place of ministry. We meet in Christian homes to design charitable estate gift plans to care for family and establish legacies to benefit LCMS ministry. All of this starts with your generosity.

We are writing now to ask for your generosity that will enable us to continue our service to the church. We created the Second Century Fund so that we can continue our work during challenging economic times. This operational endowment provides the means to continue carrying out our vision of service to you and the LCMS, providing ministry growth opportunities to the LCMS.

The Foundation’s goal is to add $100,000 to the balance of the Second Century Fund. This ambitious goal is achievable when measured against the collective generosity you and others have so graciously provided to the ministries of the LCMS.

Please join me and support the LCMS Foundation Second Century Fund with your gift of $50, $100, $500 or any other amount as the Lord guides you. Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration and may God bless you this Christmas season.
