About Us

We are formally known as Lutheran Church–Canada Financial Ministries, founded in 1983, better known by our trademark name, Lutheran Foundation Canada. The Foundation was formed to assist the member entities of Synod to manage, conserve, and be responsible for all legacies, bequests, endowments, foundations, annuity gifts, and all other trust funds of Synod. This service extends to all congregations, auxiliaries and service organizations that support the mission and ministry of Lutheran Church Canada.

In the early part of this decade, it was decided to merge the District foundations into the Synodical foundation, thereby providing a single point of reference for foundation activity within LCC, improved service to individual members, and significant savings in management due to economies of scale. The Foundation’s Board of Directors consists of two appointees from each District, three appointees by the Synod, and two advisory members - the President and Treasurer of Synod.

In summary, the Foundation exists to support the various organizations of LCC, by soliciting major gifts for these organizations, primarily as part of an individual’s Christian estate plan. To this end, we:

  • Promote and encourage the concept of “Planned Giving” as part of a Christian Estate Plan
  • Identify individuals who desire to establish a planned gift within their estate
  • Share the needs of the supported organizations with a potential donor when they request this information
  • Assist donors with their gift plan by recommending tax reduction strategies to minimize the impact to their estate
