Church Partnerships

  • Donors

    Congregational Giving

    As a congregation, you have the ability to make a significant impact in the lives of people in Minnesota and in your community. LSS relies on your financial support to carry out our mission of service across the state.
  • Church Budget

    Every year, nearly 900 Lutheran congregations provide financial support to Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota. Many include a line item for LSS in their yearly benevolence budget, providing a strong foundation of annual support for LSS.

    Special Offerings

    Consider dedicating one Sunday during the year to lift up your congregation’s support for LSS services throughout the state. Use all or a portion of the day’s offering to supplement your congregation's budgeted support of LSS.

    In-Kind Contributions

    LSS services are always in need of supplies and in-kind contributions that support their work and help the people they serve.

    Special Event Fundraisers

    Hold a special event to raise money and highlight the vital services Lutherans are part of across the state. Some things to consider are an ice cream social, an annual garage sale, and golf or bowling tournaments. Make it fun; and if you have any unique approaches or success stories, please share with us at 

    Capital Appeals

    Don’t pass up the opportunity you have to make a powerful impact by including mission support as part of your capital campaign. Many congregations around the state are setting a wonderful example for their members about the importance of stewardship.

    Foundations and Endowments

    Congregations with foundations or endowments have the chance to direct some of those resources to LSS services. Please let us know at what information we can provide or if you wish to invite a formal proposal from Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.
