Endowment Fund Ministry
Lasting Gifts that Make a Lasting Difference
We are a ministry of the La Crosse Area Synod, ELCA. Our goal is to support vital ministries of the synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Individuals and congregations can support the Endowment Fund with gifts of cash or investments, through wills
and trusts, memorial gifts, charitable annuities and special
offerings. Synod Endowment funds are primarily invested in the professionally-managed ELCA Foundation.
How are our Funds used?
