year end

thank you for your year-end giving!

Trinity Lutheran Church documents year-end gifts in accordance with IRS regulations. NOTE: this year December 31 is on a Sunday. This means that any contributions you’d like to deduct for tax purposes in 2023 must be received by worship that day. Offerings sent via mail must be postmarked by 12/30/23. 


If you are making a stock transfer or a qualified charitable gift from a required minimum distribution, please contact Rindee Erdmann (952-473-8577 x136) to let her know, as your name will not appear on the security when it is transferred.  


As you make your gifts, be sure to indicate the amounts designated for 2023 Operating Ministry, and/or if you are making an initial gift for the Capital Appeal which will begin in 2024.
