You can donate to the Shepherd of the Lake Foundation as part of your estate plan.
By naming the Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or trust, you can be confident that part of your estate will provide for the needs of SOLLC in perpetuity by becoming a part of the Shepherd of the Lake Foundation. This is a wonderful opportunity to turn a one-time donation into a permanent gift that will support the future ministry of SOLLC for years to come.
Revising your estate distributions does not have to be complicated. Contact the attorney who prepared your estate plan, or any estate planning attorney who can review your existing plan, and he or she can help you prepare an amendment that goes with the document you already have. The Trustees of the Foundation are happy to work with your estate planning attorney to provide any information needed. You should also contact your tax advisor regarding your specific tax situation.
For questions, please contact us at [email protected].
Make a monthly, annual, or one-time gift to the Foundation online now or give during regular church offering collection (simply write \”Foundation\” on your offering envelope).
For donations of $150 or more, an inscribed memorial brick may be placed in the Memorial Courtyard as recognition of your gift.
The Minnesota Valley Electric Co-op (MVEC) is a nonprofit business that assigns profits at the end of the year to a member\’s capital credits account. At some point in the future, a portion of the credits are distributed to members. This physical distribution could occur years after the funds are deposited in the account.
If you receive your electricity from MVEC, there is a special program that allows you to donate the money from your year-end capital credits account to the Foundation. Dividend assignment forms are available online or at the Foundation kiosk on the Upper Path. For more information, please contact us at [email protected].
