Welcome to your resource for charitable gift planning!

It's no secret that the programs of Lutheran World Relief depend upon your goodwill. We've created this easy-to-understand Web site to help you dream a little, about our future and yours. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose—strategies that enhance your personal well being, as well as LWR.

If you're not sure where to begin, try our Build Your Gift planner. By answering a few basic questions, this interactive tool steps you through the process of narrowing down your choices. It's fun and easy to use!

If you already have gift options in mind, click on Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up or click on eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option. If you get lost, rest assured that we're always here to help. Simply contact Michael Johnson at 612-248-2214 or mjohnson@lwr.org with any questions. Happy dreaming!
