The Lutheran Community Foundation works with financial representatives and other professional advisors to create charitable solutions for individuals, congregations and organizations. We can help financial representatives combine values of community and stewardship with financial expertise, and extend these services to your clients.

Professional advisors don't need any special qualifications to facilitate gifts to the LCF, and we support you with the tools to work with a variety of assets, plus step-by-step information to complete your client's gift.
