Endowment Fund

Leave a Forever Legacy

This year Lutherhaven’s permanent Endowment Fund will top $1.2 million in assets, thanks to people like you who value our mission, commitment and accomplishments! In 2000 that was just over $157,000!

Bequests to the Endowment Fund give twice: now … and forever. 20% of estate bequests go right now to special needs, projects and programs. Recently, for instance, endowment gifts bought a new truck, built a new boat house, bought new docks, and inaugurated a new camp program.

The remaining 80% of estate gifts are invested in perpetuity … giving to Lutherhaven forever!

Each year the ministry gets to spend 4% of the Endowment Fund, leaving the rest to grow. For every million in the fund, camp gets to spend $40,000 annually, and still (in most years) the fund grows substantially!

Our goal: a $10 million Endowment, allowing us to spend $400,000 annually for specially designated projects. What a great, forever inheritance. We’re on our way there!


A Forever Legacy in your Lifetime!

Through the years, many individuals have used planned gifts as excellent opportunities to benefit Lutherhaven Ministries. In addition to personal satisfaction, planned gifts offer the opportunity to minimize federal and state taxes, maximizing the distribution of your assets. Consult with your own tax and legal advisers to fully understand the tax implications of particular gift plans. Lutherhaven also has experts available to help you through your planned giving options to benefit your camps!
