Consider Supporting LESA Through Planned Giving
We’d be happy to discuss how you can be a part of the Heritage Club and leave a legacy for Lutheran education. The LCMS Foundation is one of LESA’s partners in assisting you as you remember the students LESA serves in your estate plan.
As children of Christ, we are called upon to be good stewards of the assets with which we have been blessed. Good stewardship includes faithful financial planning for ourselves, our families and our community to assure that future needs will be met.
What is Planned Giving?
Planned Giving generally refers to gifts that we make from our accumulated assets or other sources, such as insurance proceeds or annuities, to support the missions and activities of charitable or religious organizations of the donor’s choice such as the Lutheran Elementary School Association. Your planned gift will provide for Lutheran education in our community, so that it may remain vital in years to come. Anyone can make a planned gift. Planned gifts can take many forms including: wills, trusts, life insurance, gift annuities, real estate, and securities. Click here to view the most common types of planned giving tools.
What is the Heritage Club?
Membership in the Heritage Club of the Lutheran Elementary School Association’s (LESA) Founder’s Society is reserved for those who have included Lutheran Elementary School Association of St. Louis in their will, trust and/or estate plans, have named LESA as a beneficiary (whole or partial) of an insurance policy or retirement account, and/or have established an endowment fund.
What is a Financial Plan?
Financial planning can take many forms, but every Financial Plan should include a current and up-to-date estate plan, whether it be a will or trust. If you’d like to discuss financial planning with a trained expert, contact us and we can refer you to one.
