Building a legacy

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation, Appleton, Wis., awarded Bethlehem Lutheran Church and Bethlehem Lutheran Church Foundation, Minneapolis, a $100,000 grant to develop “Legacy Gifting for All Ages,” a multigenerational campaign to spur charitable giving.

Part of Thrivent’s “Charitable Gifting Initiative,” the grants are designed to educate supporters of Lutheran institutions and ministries about the advantages of tax-wise charitable gifts.

A review of an old established gifting process is underway at our church;  Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Southern Pines, North Carolina.  I would be interested in any established process and education model already in place that may help our effort.
