The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) Endowment received a matching gift from a charitable foundation enabling it to be established in 2001. From its initial funding with the 60th Anniversary Thank Offering at the 2001 LWML San Jose Convention, to being dedicated at the 2003 LWML Oklahoma City Convention, thereafter to be called the LWML Endowment Fund, the following blessings have been a result:
- Generous and ongoing gifts have been designated to the LWML Endowment from bequests, trusts, special district offerings, and other gifts.
- Earnings from the LWML Endowment Fund have been used to train and equip leaders.
- The LWML Endowment enables LWML to more fully carry out the LWML mission of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Continued support for the LWML Endowment is necessary to provide a legacy for the future.
