Planned Giving

Individuals who include The St. Philip the Deacon Foundation or St. Philip the Deacon Lutheran Church in their legacy plans not only enjoy real tax benefits, but also have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to provide ongoing support for the church they love in perpetuity.

In these pages, you can learn more about different kinds of legacy gifts, compare the benefits of each of them, and use tools like gift calculators to determine which type of gift may be best for you and your family. Learn more.

If you have already decided to leave a legacy gift to the Church or Foundation through your estate, please let us know by completing and returing this Letter of Intent, which makes you a member of Rejoicing Partners.

Please contact Pastor Tim Westermeyer at or 763-475-7136 with any questions.
