The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod

International Mission

 Gifts matched up to $50,000

A disciple of Jesus is matching contributions directed to LCMS International Mission’s general fund dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $50,000.

The International Mission General Fund gives program leaders and regional directions the ability to direct important financial resources to Gospel-focused, hope-sharing efforts where other donor contributions are unavailable or insufficient to complete the work.

At the present time, the general fund is one of two areas with the most pressing need for the Church’s support — and yours.

Gifts directed to International Mission-General (Account A16150-20480) are match-eligible.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
