When you give to the LDA, the effects ripple throughout the world! You are preparing strong, effective servants who will go and minister to those needing Christ's healing touch in 34 U.S. states and 4 other countries. The LDA has consecrated more than 725 women in its 90+ year history.

The purpose of the fund is to achieve growth in order to safeguard the long-term value of the Lutheran Deaconess Association (LDA). Having an endowment strengthens the LDA in its mission of training servant leaders to show the love of Jesus Christ through faith and service. 

By distributing amounts less than 6% of the value of the Endowment Fund each year, the Fund will grow and provide a permanent source of support for the benefit of deaconess ministry, above and beyond the programs and operations supported through annual gifts.
