Endowments — Gifting Options

The Texas District has three endowment funds with Legacy Deo (legacydeo.org). All gifts contributed remain in the fund and distributions are directed to the specific purpose.

Donations can be sent to the LWML Texas District Financial Secretary (by mail or electronically) or to Legacy Deo (electronically). Please designate the endowment fund(s) desired:

The Mission Goal Endowment (EN334) provides funds for the mission goal of LWML Texas District.

The Mission Inreach Endowment (EN165) provides funds for spiritual enrichment, member development and leadership training opportunities for members of the LWML Texas District.

The Scholarship Endowment (EN057) provides scholarships for women from Texas going into full-time church work fields at an LCMS university or college.
