Every Gift Matters


Faith Simonieg, WND Regional Gift Planner for the ELCA Foundation, is here to serve you and your congregation without cost or obligation.  This position is a cooperative ministry of the ELCA, WND Synod, and Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota providing planned giving education, donor assistance, and assistance to congregations establishing a Mission Endowment Fund.

If your congregation has an endowment or is thinking about establishing one, Faith is available as a resource for topics such as model language for existing or new endowment funds, how to manage funds with integrity, establishing proper distribution policies, how to inspire members of your congregation to contribute, and ideas on celebrating the gifts received.

She also meets with individuals to provide a review of their holistic giving plan, to explore ways to continue the faithful legacy they are already creating, provide education on the various gifting options, and choosing the proper gifting vehicle.

For more information, please contact Faith at faith.simonieg@elca.org or 701-226-5865.

Every Gift Matters.
