Your Chance to Give

The need for Christian special education is on the rise which means LASE needs your gifts to meet our mission. Every gift makes a measurable impact on the lives of children. We are diligent stewards of your investment and provide leading expertise and quality for LASE students and their families.

Ways to Give

Annual Fund/Individual Gift

Your gift to the annual fund provides financial resources that reach, inspire, and strengthen the potential and purpose of every child of the King. When individual gifts are combined together for the annual fund, the LASE community collectively joins together around a common purpose to ensure that each child in Lutheran schools develops a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior while growing academically, physically, and socially.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gifts when you give to LASE. Please check with your human resources department to learn if your gift can be matched.

Endowment Fund

LASE endowment funds provide perpetual income that funds ongoing ministry needs. Only the income earned from the endowment is used so your gift can continue to provide stability and resources for the future.

Planned Gifts

Planned estate gifts or bequests are a thoughtful way to provide for the future of the LASE ministry. By planning now, you designate your resources to help children who will benefit from your help in the future.

Thrivent Choice

Thrivent Choice is the charitable grant program from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. Eligible benefit members are can direct their Thrivent Choice Dollars to LASE. If you are eligible to participate in Choice Dollars, or are uncertain about your eligibility, visit or contact your local Thrivent Financial representative.

Thrivent Choice is just one more way you can make a difference in the lives of our children.

Appreciated Stocks/Mutual Funds
