Ways to Give
In 2016, your gifts have helped our church respond to hunger and poverty through more than 400 projects in nearly 60 countries around the world, including the United States. These gifts are brought together with the skills, capacity and resources of local communities to make transformative change. By working effectively through trusted relationships, ELCA World Hunger has consistently kept fundraising and administration costs at less than 10 percent annually, to ensure that your gift goes where it is needed most.
