Donors and Volunteers
A strong foundation inspires us to build for the future, and our success continues to rise as long as our people lift us up. Graceworks Lutheran Services can only thrive with the generosity of others, and on a daily basis, we are blessed as kindhearted people continue to give their time, talents, and resources. Because of their compassionate acts, selfless service, and meaningful gifts, our people make our success possible.
We are grateful for the generosity of our donors. The list includes all cash gifts actually received by Graceworks Lutheran Services during 2017 for all programs. We also appreciate those who gave gifts-in-kind or designated contributions through United Way and the Combined Federal Campaign. We thank other donors and volunteers who generously gave time and resources but whose names are not recorded.
In addition to the generous funds given by our donors, our volunteers are equally valuable to us as they selflessly give their time and talent. Graceworks Lutheran Services relies on our volunteers who provide assistance and services to improve the lives of our community members.
Bequests and Deferred Gifts
Graceworks Lutheran Services thanks and recognizes people who planned through their estates to help our ministries continue after their deaths.
The Spiral of Life Society
People who have made known their completed arrangements for deferred gifts to Graceworks Lutheran Services through wills, gift annuities, life insurance, or other charitable devices are members of the Spiral of Life Society.
We invite Lutheran congregations to affirm their involvement with Graceworks Lutheran Services by becoming members. Through the covenant process, member congregations may commit their support in a number of ways: appoint delegates to annual meetings; appoint a Graceworks Lutheran Services Advocate as a liaison; provide financial support, plan and implement an event in support of Graceworks Lutheran Services; or supply volunteers.
