Mission Endowment Fund

Mission Endowment Fund

The Immanuel Lutheran Church Mission Endowment Fund was set up under the By-Laws of our Church Constitution in 2003. It has been designated to enhance the Mission Outreach of Immanuel apart from the general operation and the contributions to the Unified Budget. No portion of this Fund is to be used for the annual operating expenses of the Congregation. Your gifts and bequests to this fund become part of its principal. Income from investment of the principal represents the amount available for allocation for the activities of the mission which have included:

  • Stephen Ministry training
  • Puerto Rico Relief
  • Advent Lutheran Church Lake Ann
  • Living Waters Ministries
  • ILC Youth Group Gatherings
  • ILC Youth Group Mission trips
  • Sarah Keller Uganda Mission trip
  • Annual Graduating Seniors gift
  • Amy Henderson Mission trip
  • Katrina Relief
  • Christmas Outreach
  • ICRH Isabella County Restoration 
  • House
  • LSSM Samaritas
  • AIM Association Inter-Faith 
  • Ministries
  • Campus Ministry

Fund donations have reached a level that allows us to spend income from the principal invested.

While the Endowment Committee has highlighted several planned gift options, there are alternate plans available to realize the highest personal and financial satisfaction from making your charitable gift to the Endowment Fund.

How Can I Help?

We recommend that you always begin with prayer when considering your financial giving and ask that God use your money to His glory in the continued work in support of His Kingdom.

You can also . . . 

  • Remember the Endowment Fund when you do your personal estate planning. 
  • Consider a special occasion gift. Perhaps a milestone, a birthday, an anniversary, or inheritance will provide an occasion to remember the Endowment Fund. 
  • You may consider a memorial gift of remembrance. This is a thoughtful way to honor a loved one. 
  • Join others who have made the thoughtful decision to include the church in their financial planning and when considering their Will & Testament.

  • Cash

  • Securities, IRAs, 401K
