How do you wish St. Peter’s Lutheran Foundation to use your gift?

Donors to The Foundation may designate their gifts and bequests for specific programs or interests, although undesignated funds provide the greatest flexibility to support the ministry of our church and school.  The Foundation also offers investment options.  All dividends and interest from these investment strategies are used annually to support the Church’s mission.

 

The professionally-managed growth investment option emphasizes long-term growth and income generation.

 

The fixed income option utilizes high-quality government and corporate bonds.

 

All donations given to the Foundation are fully tax-deductible as a charitable contribution.
