All Saints Foundation

 

About the Foundation

The All Saints Foundation was established in 1986 as a separate, nonprofit, charitable corporation. It provides a means for church members and others to express their gratitude to God for the blessings they have received, or for other personal reasons which may prompt them to consider the church in their charitable giving plans. The eight directors of the All Saints Foundation are All Saints Lutheran Church members. The pastors and congregation council president also serve as directors.

Making a Gift

Gifts to the All Saints Foundation create a perpetual source of income to support the mission of the Foundation. Note that gifts to the Foundation cannot be used to fund need covered under the general operating budget of All Saints Lutheran Church. Gifts may be given to the Foundation in several ways:

Checks

Checks of any size are always welcome. Checks can be made out to the All Saints Lutheran Church with “All Saints Foundation” noted on the memo line. Foundation donations may be designated on offering envelopes.

Memorial Gifts

The All Saints Foundation can be designated as the beneficiary of memorials for loved ones.

Gratitude Greetings

Cards are available at the Welcome Center for donations to be made in honor of those who have made a difference in your life.

Bequests and Wills

The use of bequests in wills is one of the most significant ways of supporting the Foundation. A lifetime stewardship plan may make provision in a will for the continuation of the Lord’s work. Depending on your circumstances, bequests to the Foundation may have beneficial estate tax ramifications.

Securities and Real Estate

Tax laws recognize financial support for institutions like the Foundation. Appreciated securities given to the Foundation can provide special tax benefits to the donor, including a reduction or elimination of capital gains tax.
