What Can I Give?
Gifts of Cash
As always, a gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. These can be one time gifts, ongoing gifts, and/or automated payments. Many of our contribution forms allow you to have your gift automatically repeated on a monthly basis.
You can create an account on this website that will allow you to stop automated gifts at any time. (You can also call us and we can stop them.)
Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
Do you want to sell your securities, but don’t want to pay the capital gains tax? Consider making a gift of your securities to Lutheran Bible Translators instead, including stocks or bonds. Gifts are not subject to capital gains tax! Contact David Snyder (below) for more information.
Gifts of Retirement Assets
Another great way to further the work of helping people access God’s Word is through a gift of your retirement assets. These include your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan.
Gifts of Insurance
Did you know that you can make a gift of your life insurance policy? If it is no longer needed, or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making it a gift to LBT to advance Bible translation.
Gifts to LBT are tax-deductible as allowable by law. LBT makes every effort to honor donor designation preferences, however all gifts are subject to the discretion and control of Lutheran Bible Translators.
Ways to donate
There are several way you can give either a one time or recurring donation. Choose what is most convenient and secure for you.
Mail – You can send a check. To make the gift recurring, send a voided check to us with a signed note stating how much you want to have withdrawn every month from your checking account.
Mail the check and signed note to:
Lutheran Bible Translators, PO Box 789, Concordia, MO 64020-0789
Or send us information using this secure form.
Your bank – Many banks offer a “web bill payment” system that allows you to send a check from your bank to Lutheran Bible Translators once, or every month. There are usually no fees or postage for this! This keeps you in complete control of the donation schedule. Contact your bank for details.
Credit Card – You may give a gift through your credit card. Most of our donation forms allow you to make your gift recur every month if you desire.
Phone – Call us at 660-225-0810 or 1-800-532-4253 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. CST to make a credit card gift or set up an automatic contribution plan.
