As aging populations begin to live longer, we’re faced with a changing set of challenges and a growing number of opportunities. And while the costs of providing quality care continue to climb, Lutheran Senior Services is committed to providing the same quality of service for every senior under our care. It’s at the heart of our Christian mission: Older Adults Living Life to the Fullest.
Two essential parts of living this mission are the LSS Living Foundation and our Benevolent Care Endowment Fund — serving those residents who, through no fault of their own, outlive their financial ability to pay. With every contribution, you’re providing a gift that will bring comfort and hope to those in need during a vulnerable time in their lives. We thank you in advance for helping an LSS resident have a home for life.

Giving by check
Make your check payable to “Lutheran Senior Services” and mail it to The LSS Living Foundation, Lutheran Senior Services, 1150 Hanley Industrial Ct., St. Louis, MO 63144. Your gift will be placed into our Benevolent Care Fund unless you indicate you would prefer it be used in another way.
Make a one-time gift OR have regular gifts withdrawn electronically. You determine the duration and frequency of your contribution. The options are completely flexible.
Transfer appreciated stocks or securities
Donors may gift securities that are held electronically, such as individual shares of stock, mutual funds, or bonds. Donors may also gift individual stock certificates, a move that may help them avoid or reduce capital gains taxes normally levied when stocks are sold. Be sure to consult your accountant or tax advisor regarding the benefits of gifting stock.
Include LSS in your estate planning
Make a planned gift that will benefit others beyond your lifetime. Examples of this kind of gift include simple will bequests, charitable trusts, charitable or deferred gift annuities, assignment of life insurance, and designation as beneficiary of qualified retirement plans.
