How do I go about contributing to the endowment fund?
A board of trustees consisting of Island Lutheran members has been established and will work with you in setting up your donation. The trustees will also work with your financial advisor if you so choose. The trustees will assure that the donation is made in the proper way so that you will receive full tax credits. Some people may want to make this as an anonymous donation and the trustees are also able to work with this request. To meet with a trustee, please contact the pastor or the church office at 843-689-5200 or email at islandlutheran@gmailcom, and they will refer you to a trustee. However, if you wish you may also make your contribution directly through Lutheran Legacy Foundation. You may call them at 217-463-8202.
