Special Event Giving

Special Event Giving

Celebrate your special event by giving hope to others.

Request that your friends and relatives make a charitable donation in your honor in lieu of purchasing presents. Simply include a statement in your event invitation such as, “Please no presents, however donations to Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota ( to support Minnesotans facing challenging times are appreciated.”

When a gift is made in honor of your special event, you will receive an acknowledgement letter so that you may thank your friends personally.

Host a Fundraising Event

If you are interested in self-hosting an event to benefit Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota or a specific service area, we would be happy to provide brochures and other educational materials.

Self-hosted events are not sponsored by LSS and should be presented as “proceeds to benefit Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota” or the specific service area. You collect any donations and send them to Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota. The appropriate tax documentation will be provided to you.
