How it works
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is a church that is freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world.

ELCA Good Gifts go beyond your regular congregational offering to support the ministries of the ELCA that mean the most to you and your loved ones. Together, we do more than we could ever do alone: grow the church, fight hunger and transform lives.

Step 1 Choose your gift
Browse the catalog and select from more than 50 gift-giving options. Choose the gifts that mean the most to you or choose gifts in honor of friends or loved ones.


Sample CardStep 2 Announce your gift
Tell others about the ELCA Good Gifts you have given in their honor by printing a card or sending an eCard. With each online donation you may request a printed card to be mailed to your home. Please allow two weeks for delivery.


Step 3 Where your money goes
More than 90% of your gifts directly support programmatic work
We believe that people know their own communities best. We start by listening to our congregations and our global companion churches that first identify the local needs and related solutions that help make a difference. Then, we partner with people to make those dreams a reality in their own communities.

The items in this catalog represent the kinds of projects and programs supported by funds from the ELCA. Your donations support work within the same categories of ministry (e.g., agriculture, malaria, disaster response, etc.) related to your gift, where needed most, so that your donation has the biggest impact. In order to honor your generosity and keep administrative costs low, the ELCA does not track individual gifts to specific families or locations in the U.S. or abroad.

  Step 4 How you help
Your gift carries God’s love to others, making a difference in their lives and in the world. Your donations support long-term, sustainable solutions that ensure that these good gifts last for more than a couple of days or weeks. They keep on giving for years to come.
