Mission statement: We help our members identify their values and create personal legacies which extend the ministries of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church. Through legacy gifts, the Foundation seeks to match donor intentions with ministries that serve the needs of people in Christ’s name in the community, the nation and around the world.Information is Power!
If you have questions about the website we can also offer “live” help. Contact Tim Torgerson at 651-426-3261 and we can answer your question directly or, if you prefer, set up a meeting with one of the professional financial advisors from St. Andrew’s that serve on an advisory panel for the Foundation.
Recognize an important person or event in your life by sponsoring a weekly broadcast of St. Andrew's Sunday morning worship service on KLBB radio. Your sponsorship will be announced on the radio prior to the broadcast and highlighted in a sponsorship summary in the Proclaim. Join us on Sundays at The Foundation of St. Andrew's booth to sign-up for your day of sponsorship! For information call Lori Goodroad at 651-762-9103.
WHEN IT PAYS TO BE OLDER
With uncertainty in the financial markets and continued low returns on certificates of deposit, members of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church who are 65 and older might consider making a gift that creates a steady, dependable income stream for their entire lifetime (including spouse). A charitable gift annuity (CGA) does just that, and provides a gift for the St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church Foundation that will support our mission programs. Compared with current CD rates, many people can receive multiple times their current yield. In addition to higher yield, CGA’s provide the benefit of a charitable donation in the year given. Donors gifting an appreciated stock or asset also avoid paying capital gains tax. On the eventual death of the annuitant(s), the Foundation of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church receives a gift that it can use in perpetuity for mission ministry.
