Endowment Fund

Immanuel’s Endowment Fund was established to support the missions and ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church.   We encourage everyone to talk with their accountant or financial advisor about opportunities to give through:

  • Wills & Estate Plans
  • Life Insurance
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • IRA & 401(K) Plans
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Pooled Income

Immanuel maintains an Endowment Fund invested with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Foundation.

 

The existence of the Immanuel endowment funds makes it possible for any amount to be contributed and continue to advance the missions of Immanuel in perpetuity.  Although the establishment of a new fund requires a minimum contribution, a gift of any amount may be given to any of the following existing funds:

  • General Church Fund
  • Properties, Laesch Fund
  • E.B. Hess School Library Fund
  • M.J. Domke Scholarship 
  • W&E Seeber Scholarship
  • M.E. Mundinger Scholarship
  • Lutheran Higher Education
  • General School Fund
  • Technology
  • C. Felton Scholarship
  • Ruprect Scholarship
  • Dar Al-Kalima School
  • Lutheran Music Scholarship
  • Mundinger Church
  • Shurr School
  • Bretscher Fund
