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?

  • Synod Seminarian Scholarships

  • Lutheran Campus Ministry, La Crosse

  • General Synod Ministries
