Planning Your Legacy. Investing in the Future.

Careful estate planning is Christian stewardship in action. 

When you plan for the future, you tell your loved ones that you cherish and care about them.

You also have the opportunity to make an impact beyond your lifetime through the charities you love, to help people you have never met, in places you may never visit.

Legacy giving can allow you to protect your assets, decrease your taxes and even increase your current income while allowing Lutheran World Relief to plan for and commit to more partnerships that bring lasting solutions. 

We invite you to prayerfully consider participation in Partners in Lasting Promise, Lutheran World Relief’s legacy giving society. A gift of a will or trust, retirement plan assets, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, or real estate all qualify you for membership.

Our Donor Advisors can be a valuable resource in planning for your future.

Will or Trust

Creating a will or trust is an important way to extend your love, care, generosity and gratitude to family, loved ones and the charitable causes you care about.

Only you know the special circumstances of your family members and heirs. Those who die without a will, leave their estate to be divided according to the laws in the state where they live. Including individual beneficiaries and your favorite charitable organizations in your estate planning is the best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out in the future. There may also be beneficial tax deductions to consider for charitable gifts made through your will or estate plans.

The official legal bequest language for Lutheran World Relief is:

I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to Lutheran World Relief, Inc, EIN #13-2574963, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.

Relationships and situations change, so it is a good idea to review your will from time to time to ensure that it is up to date. Also, the laws of each state are different, so we encourage you to seek the advice of qualified counsel before finalizing your will or trust.
