The Importance of Gift Planning

You may be able to create more opportunities and give more back to Immanuel than you think possible. The key? Gift planning. Planned gifts are arranged now to benefit Immanuel later for funding support.

Gift planning can reduce taxes on your income and estate, resulting in a larger gift. Often, gift planning that is part of a comprehensive financial plan can increase the amount received by your beneficiaries. Many planned gifts bring additional advantages, such as steady, secure income for you. In addition to the joy and satisfaction of giving a gift, a planned gift is a powerful witness to your beneficiaries of God's gifts to you.

Planned gifts can include cash, securities, retirement plan assets, real estate, life insurance proceeds, and more.

What an Endowment Fund Is

An endowment fund is an investment account established for the long term benefit of Immanuel. The money and assets that are given to the Immanuel Endowment Funds are given with the stipulation that the funds are invested to grow instead of being spent right away. This fund is made up of current gifts and bequests. This charitable structure distributes only the income bequests by the endowment fund. An endowment is perpetual and provides ongoing permanent funding support that may be relied upon year after year. It is this permanent endowment that helps secure Immanuel's future and expand Immanuel's ministries. 

A gift to an endowment fund is a gift that keeps on giving. The original amount of the gift is invested to earn yearly interest, which in turn is used to support school priorities.

Our Goal

The commitment to the religious education endowment fund has one purpose: to help in the continuing development of religious education at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School of Loveland, Colorado.

The financial goal is to help strengthen and provide sustenance to the congregation's continuing rising costs. Assistance will be provided only as par as generated revenue permits.

The endowment fund will generate income:


to keep Christian education affordable by providing scholarships to coincide with reduced tuition applications based on need alone.


when all reduced tuitions have been brought to full tuition - fund advanced education for teachers and principal.


after 1 and 2 are met, fund conferences and worships for teachers and principal.


after 1, 2, and 3 are met, provide scholarships for students from our congregation training to be church workers.

How You Can Contribute
