ELFEC is a Lutheran Foundation and has a three-fold mission: to help congregations take care of and grow investments, to help individuals leave gifts to the Church, and to grant money to Lutheran charities and other church-related projects.



Our Impact

Our mission is growing generosity among the members, supporters, congregations and institutions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Donors join the ELFEC Giving Circle to be connected with other philanthropic-minded Lutherans.

How your gift will be used

ELFEC’s Lutheran Planned Giving program’s mission is simple “to encourage and assist people to make planned gifts to the church.”  The focus is on what impact YOU, the donor, wants to have within your congregation and community.  The possibilities are endless.

Through a gift in your Will, in response to the abundance given you by God, you are able to plan now for the legacy you want to have.  The ministries you care deeply about will be strengthened and supported.  You direct how you want your gift to be used.  Whether it is for a ministry engaged in works of justice, environmental concerns, or faith formation, or whether it is to meet your congregation’s greatest need, your gift ensures there are resources well into the future.

Your gift, made in faith, hope and love, will continue to make a difference.
