The Concordia University System encourages an endowment effort to significantly increase the number of future Lutheran leaders for the church and society. The effort has a twofold goal:

  • Increase the number of LCMS students on our college/university campuses.
  • Develop endowment funds to financially reduce the cost of students’ education.

Endowments are needed to maintain fiscally strong institutions while at the same time financially assisting students to reduce their educational cost. Lutheran university graduates are the future key leaders in our congregations and communities.

A teaching church is a church in mission. Or, as Martin Luther wrote:

“We must have and maintain Christian schools.”

Thrivent Choice

Thrivent Choice is a giving program that let's members help choose where Thrivent Financial gives back. Members can participate in one or two ways:

  • Voting: All benefits and associate members will be eligible to "vote" to distribute a portion of Thrivent Financial's charitable funds among a short list of national charities (Lutheran and non-Lutheran), one to two times per year.
  • Choice Dollars: Approximately 30% of benefit members will be able to direct Thrivent Choice Dollars to thousands of Lutheran nonprofit organizations, including Lutheran congregations. (Approximately 75% of past participants in the GivingPlus program will be eligible to direct Choice Dollars.)

Eligibility for Choice Dollars is based on a member's insurance premiums, account values and volunteer leadership. Most eligible benefit members will be able to direct between $25 and $100, and some may be able to direct as much as $500.
