Circle of Hope

Circle of HopeThe Circle of Hope honors friends of LCS who have chosen to remember the agency in their will or through a planned gift..

A special campaign is currently underway to promote membership in the Circle of Hope and giving to the Lutheran Community Services Northwest Foundation. The Foundation exists for the sole benefit of the agency and the people served by its programs.

Those who make a planned gift, or who establish an endowment within the Foundation with a current gift, will be included in the Circle of Hope. Your donation, whether deferred or current, will be invested and the annual earnings used to support LCS programs. In this way your gift will keep on giving year after year. A contribution to the Foundation helps ensure the future success of agency programs and the financial stability of the organization.

If you have already included LCS in your estate plan and would like to be listed as part of the Circle of Hope, or would like more information on deferred giving, please contact a member of the LCS development staff in your area or one of the planned giving specialists listed below.

There are also many retirement income and tax benefits to making a planned gift.If you are presently working with a financial planner, attorney, accountant or insurance specialist, please ask them how you can include planned giving in your estate plan.
