Thrivent Choice

Eligible Thrivent Financial for Lutherans members can participate in the Thrivent Choice Dollars progam.  You can designate which non-profit organization you want to receive charitable funds from Thrivent.  Please designate the LDA each and every time you have Choice Dollars to designate.

Simply Giving (electronic installment payments)

You can make electronic contributions to the LDA. The Simply Giving program works in the same manner as other electronic fund transfers or debits from your bank account.  You authorize the amount and frequency of your gift to be electronically transferred from your bank account (or credit card) to the LDA.  It’s fast, safe and easy!  And the LDA will give you an annual donation statement for your tax records. Click here for an enrollment form.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Your gift to the LDA may also qualify for a matching gift from your employer. Check with your human resources department for details.


Free Ways to Help the LDA Raise Much-Needed Funds

Every time you shop at any of 700+ online stores in the iGive network, a portion of the money you spend benefits the LDA. It's a free service, and you'll never pay more when you reach a store through iGive. In fact, smart shoppers will enjoy iGive's coupons, free shipping deals, and sales. To get started, just create your free iGive account. It’s automatic, and free.

GoodSearch: You Search...We Give!

Use to donate to the LDA every time you search the web. You can also GoodShop at hundreds of well-known retailers and GoodDine at selected restaurants.  There is no cost to you.  Supporters have helped us raise more than $1,650 so far as no cost to them.  And, you might find some great coupons to help you save money!


The LDA is always looking for volunteers to further our diaconal mission. Our needs vary throughout the year.  Contact us for more information.

Gifts In-Kind

The LDA also accepts gifts of gently used items.  An itemized receipt can be provided upon request. The LDA does not assign a value to contributed items.


We believe in the power of prayer!  Please keep deaconesses, students, and staff in your prayers.
