JoyfulResponse® is the Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) service that provides the ability for LWML to offer their members and supporters an electronic, automated method to donate mites. Offering amount and frequency is specified by the supporter. A supporter is not required to be an LCEF investor. The offerings of members will be included in their group’s contribution total. For those who are unable to attend meetings regularly or at all, JoyfulResponse® provides a means of giving regularly and consistently. Please contact the Financial Secretary for the necessary forms to ensure LWML Texas District receives your donation.
Does your employer offer a charitable giving platform like “Benevity”? If so, you may be able to designate a monthly withdrawal from your paycheck for mites, and your company may also match your donation.
Wish to honor a special person or remember a loved one? Memorial and honorarium gifts can be donations to mites, Texas District mites, or endowment funds — Mission Goal, Mission Inreach or Scholarship Endowment Funds. For information on the endowments and how to donate, click here.

If you are eligible, you may make a qualified charitable donation (QCD) which counts toward meeting the required minimum distribution (RMD) for an IRA. The distribution must be paid from the IRA directly to a charity (such as the LWML Texas District). The distribution is not taxable, and no charitable deduction can be claimed on the federal tax return. Consult with your IRA administrator and your tax advisor to determine if this is a possibility for you. (This information was obtained from the Thrivent website, thrivent.com.)
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for giving me all that I have. Bless these mites that I give back to you so that they can be used to spread the Good News of Jesus' love here and throughout the world. Amen.
Mite Boxes are used to collect money for missions.
25% of the mite offering is sent to the national LWML for national mission goal and the remaining 75% is used for LWML Texas District mission goal (includes mission grants and work program to accomplish its mission). Our mite goal reflects both our offerings for LWML and our district.
Mite money is used to further God's kingdom through the mission grants selected by delegates at district and national conventions.
Personal mite boxes and children's mite boxes (free for shipping costs) and larger mite boxes (must be purchased) can be ordered from CPH or online at lwml.org.
Place your Mite Box wherever you can feed it: dressing table, office desk, laundry room, car, kitchen counter, etc. You might want to give a Mite Box to family members and friends.
