GIFTS AND PLANNED GIVING TO SUPPORT STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS

Financial gifts 

If you would like to make a financial gift to help support scholarships given by the TEF you may do so by making a gift to Trinity Lutheran College, designated to the Trinity Education Foundation.  100% of your gift will flow from the college to the foundation.  After the new legal structure for the foundation is determined and finalized it will then be registered to receive gifts directly, and you’ll then be able to give electronically.  We will keep you informed when this happens.


What about Planned Gifts (estate gifts)?

If you currently have Trinity Lutheran College or the Lutheran Bible Institute-Seattle in your estate plan:

We have had a number of people ask about what to do with their estate plans since they have Trinity in their plans or have been thinking about including Trinity in their plans.  We encourage you to stay the course!  With the continuation of the foundation your estate gift will help ensure a college education and vocational service learning experience for future students and allow them to serve the world as God has gifted them.  

At this point, keep Trinity Lutheran College as the beneficiary.  Your estate gift will flow from the college to the foundation.  After the new legal structure for the foundation is determined and finalized it will then be registered to receive gifts directly.  We will keep you informed when this happens.

If you would like to have the Trinity Education Foundation in your estate plan:

You can certainly do so!  With the continuation of the foundation your estate gift will help ensure a college education and vocational service learning experience for future students and allow them to serve the world as God has gifted them.  

At this point, please indicate Trinity Lutheran College as the beneficiary.  Your estate gift will flow from the college to the foundation.  After the new legal structure for the foundation is determined and finalized it will then be registered to receive gifts directly.  We will keep you informed when this happens.

If you have or intend to have Trinity in your estate plan, please let us know so that we can have record of this. Contact Kelly Miller, our Executive Director, to let him know by emailing kelly.miller@tef-lbi.org or calling  (425) 249-4800.  Feel free to contact to him if you have questions about this. Thank you!
