By including the church in our wills, we are able to pass along some of what we have been given for future generations of faith. The language can be as simple as naming a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate's residual value with the church as beneficiary. Contact your attorney or the church office if you need assistance.
If you would like weekly offering envelopes, which may be placed in the offering plate or mailed to the church office, please send your request to the church office. Your personalized envelope number helps assure that your contribution will be credited correctly for tax purposes.
Stocks and Securities
Gifts of appreciated stocks and securities will often provide tax benefits to the giver along with a valuable donation. Securities can be donated either electronically or by physical delivery. To ensure that we can acknowledge your gift for tax purposes, and for help with the necessary paperwork, please notify us in advance by contacting our church treasurer.
Many employers or other groups will match donations you make. If your employer will not allow dollars to be designated for religious purposes, they will often approve dollars given to our Social Ministry fund which provides layettes and other supplies for those in need. Contact the church office for assistance.
Thrivent Choice Dollars Designation
If you currently have investments with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, you may be eligible to direct Choice Dollars through Thrivent Choice. By recommending St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Renton as a beneficiary, some of Thrivent's charitable outreach grant dollars will be sent to SMLC. This is a great way to leverage your investment in Thrivent! Contact your Thrivent representative or watch for your opportunity in your Thrivent mailings.
