Endowment Fund

Trinity Lutheran Church & TLC Preschool has decided to start an endowment fund to begin planting for the future work that God will do through His Church here in Casa Grande. Endowment Funds are the gifts that keep on giving, year after year after year!  Endowments are funded through charitable and tax deductible donations from individuals, families, organizations, trusts, etc.  Gifts typically include not only cash, but are often completed by gifts of real estate, appreciated stock, 401(k) or IRA accounts, life insurance proceeds, etc.

Trinity has opened its endowment fund with the Lutheran Foundation of Texas (LFOT) (www.lfot.org), with an initial investment of $17,000. On a long-term basis, endowments are typically funded by ongoing gifts through a process called "planned giving".  Please click on this LINK to read more detailed information about planned giving and how both immediate and planned gifts can be made.  Trinity will begin receiving annual distributions from the endowment year after year that we can use to fund missions and ministries including new programs, building repairs, or even plant new churches.  For example, if over time our endowment fund grew to $1,000,000 and we received distributions at a rate of 5%, Trinity would receive $50,000 per year, every year, for use in serving God's Kingdom.

If you would like to make a donation toward this fund, please indicate your gift as designated for the "Endowment Fund" and make your check payable to Trinity Lutheran Church.  If you would like more information, please contact Pastor Chase or contact our representative from the Lutheran Foundation of Texas, Gary A.
