Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation | InFaith Community Foundation
InFaith Community Endowment

Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation has created an endowment fund through InFaith Community Foundation. This endowment fund is designed to grow and provide ongoing, permanent support for tuition assistance at Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School.  This support allows many families to provide their children with a Christian education at our school that might not otherwise be able to afford it.

Why Give?

All gifts, whatever the size, help grow the mission of Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation and are appreciated. It’s also true that the Foundation’s funds grow more quickly with additional gifts than by investment return resulting in more scholarship dollars being available for students.

There are many ways to give to the Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School Foundation and each offers you maximum tax benefits based on when and how assets are given.  InFaith Community Foundation’s expert staff is available to answer your questions and help you give to your endowment fund in ways that match your financial interests and abilities.

Please contact InFaith regarding your proposed gift.

To make a gift of stock or mutual fund assets, please call InFaith. We will provide specific instructions based on the following:

  • Stock held by a brokerage firm, bank or other financial institution
  • Stock held by a company with a transfer agent
  • Stock or mutual funds to be transferred from an account at Thrivent 
  • Stock held in paper certificates

The estimated time to complete your gift is dependent on how it’s held. If you’re unclear about how your stock is held, please call us for assistance with related paperwork (statement and/or report) in hand. While there is typically no cost associated with the transfer of stock or mutual funds to InFaith Community Foundation, there is a nominal fee incurred when InFaith liquidates the transferred assets. These charges are deducted from proceeds of the stock or mutual fund sale/liquidation and do not reduce your charitable deduction.

If you are 70½ or older, you may create a non-advised charitable fund with gifts of qualified charitable distributions from your IRA. When making this type of gift, you recommend one or more IRS-qualified charities to receive automatic annual grants from your charitable fund, either in perpetuity or for a term of years. If a charity you recommend loses its tax-exempt status, grants will be reallocated among remaining charities. If all charities cease to exist, remaining charitable support is directed to the InFaith Community Fund. When making this type of gift, you do not have advisory capacity over the charitable fund once it is established due to IRS regulations.

To make a gift of QCDs:

  • Contact your IRA administrator and request a QCD be sent directly to: InFaith Community Foundation: 600 Portland Ave South, Suite 5100, Minneapolis MN 55415  / Tax ID: 41-1802412.
  • Notify InFaith when the distribution request has been made, so we can watch for the check and ensure it’s properly credited to your non-advised fund.
  • InFaith will send a gift acknowledgement for the QCD to share with your tax preparer.
