“The process of making a planned gift began with the simple fact that we take seriously the [call] to ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ Working with our gift planner has been wonderfully helpful to us. She was marvelous at explaining all of the options.”
“My gift planner sat with me and discussed what was important in my life. The ELCA Foundation has a lot of gift-planning options and ministries that match my values and interests.”
