Planned or Legacy Gifts

Make a lasting contribution to ensure that LPGM’s programs continue well into the future. Here are several ways to make a financial commitment from your estate plans:

  • Bequests: Make a gift to support our future work by including LPGM in your will or living trust which offers an estate tax charitable deduction. These gifts can provide a critical base of reliable support for our programs.
  • Retirement Plan Assets: Use your tax deferred retirement plan to continue supporting our work.  If you have an IRA and are over the age of 70½, you can make a gift to LPGM of up to $100,000 directly from your account without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal. Learn More.
  • Charitable Trusts: Explore ways a life income gift can pay income to you or your chosen beneficiary for a term of years or for life and also provide future support for our global ministry.
  • Life Insurance: Naming LPGM in a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for family support or liquidity may be an excellent vehicle for a gift. Consult your tax advisor to see if this type of planning makes sense for you and your loved ones.

Donor Advised Funds

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) allows you to contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a charitable organization like LPGM and become eligible for an immediate tax deduction. You can then recommend grants from your fund over time. By using a DAF, you centralize your giving, making record-keeping easier. 

Information to share with your DAF administrator: 

Legal Name: Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry Inc.

Federal Tax ID (EIN): 41-1818525

Stocks or other Securities

There are many advantages to stock and securities gifts including:

  • avoiding capital gains tax when you give long-term appreciated securities to LPGM;
  • receiving a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock if it has been held for more than a year; and
  • allowing LPGM to receive the full fair market value of the donated securities.

If you are ready to make a stock donation, contact Naomi Staruch at or 612.806.0731 for the current delivery instructions.
