HELPING GOD'S PEOPLE PREPARE AND SHARE A CHRISTIAN LEGACY
WHO ARE WE?
Our Foundation was organized in 1986 to receive charitable gifts for the benefit of Christ Lincoln. A board elected by the congregation oversees the various aspects of this ministry. We seek to assist members in managing their God-given assets in a manner that honors God and provides benefits to themselves, their families and the various ministries of the church.
Over the years, gifts from various sources have been received and invested. Earnings derived from the funds in the Foundation are used to further the ministry of Christ Lincoln and Christ Lincoln Schools above and beyond what is possible through the general fund budget supported by regular offerings.
Since 1999 our funds have been managed by the LCMS Foundation, and through this partnership, Christ Lincoln members have access to a wide array of financial planning tools and services. Professional gift-planning counselors are available to assist members in navigating the many options available for asset planning and charitable giving.
"TO DO GOOD, TO BE RICH IN GOOD DEEDS AND TO BE GENEROUS AND WILLING TO SHARE… ...SO THAT THEY MAY TAKE HOLD OF THE LIFE THAT IS TRULY LIFE.”
1 TIMOTHY 6:18-19
Each year, we review many diverse requests and are blessed to be able to support many that serve Christ and further His Kingdom.
