The Mite Box

Most, if not all, organizations have something symbolic of their organization. The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is no exception. We have the Mite Box!


Based on the Biblical account of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1-4), the Mite Box is intended for regular contributions to “mites” — offerings above and beyond the support an individual might give to their congregation. Mite Box contributions go hand-in-hand with LWML’s major emphasis of supporting mission and ministry efforts throughout the world. These Mite Box offerings have funded over 100 million dollars in mission grants since the LWML was organized in 1942.

Mite Box offerings may be gathered in any number of ways including LWML groups, zone, and district events, and are regularly (monthly) submitted to the LWML office at 801 Seminary Place, Ste. L010, St. Louis, MO 63105 (note new address) so that mission grants can be funded as they are received. Individual contributions are welcomed and encouraged. Remember, there are only five (5) months left in this biennium to reach the $2,075,000 Mission Goal.  Let’s keep filling those Mite Boxes!
