    • Gifts of Stock and Securities
      Donating appreciated shares of stock to LSS may offer better tax savings than giving a cash gift.

    • Endowment Campaign
      Changing Lives: Now and Forever is a five-year, $10 million campaign to strengthen Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota’s permanent endowment and advance our mission.

    • Love Your Neighbor Fund
      Gifts to the Love Your Neighbor Fund will be used each day where the need is greatest; for a senior in need of a hot meal, a returning veteran seeking employment counseling, to support a refugee family fleeing persecution or empower a youth experiencing homelessness.
    • Memorial and Tribute Gifts
