Do you know your gift planner?

Posted on September 20, 2011 by Jessica Nipp Hacker

Did you know that the ELCA has 23 staff people whose job it is to assist ELCA members in making charitable planned gifts? They’re a wonderful resource for congregations wanting to create an endowment fund, or individuals wanting to leave a legacy.

The ELCA Malaria Campaign is a great opportunity for giving! Since our campaign is a short-term one ($15 million by 2015!), we’re very interested in “outright gifts”– cash gifts or gifts that can be converted immediately into cash (such as gifts of stocks or bonds).

Your friendly neighborhood ELCA Foundation Gift Planner can help you to make an outright gift to the ELCA Malaria Campaign. And who, you might wonder, is my friendly neighborhood gift planner? Well, check out this link to find out. Many areas of the ELCA are represented by a deployed gift planner, and if your area is not one of them, there are other ELCA staff who would be delighted to help you out!
