We’re excited to share that Lutheran Services has been named to Forbes magazine’s “America’s Top Charities 2018” list. “This elite group [of charities] together received $49 billion in gifts, a whopping 12% of the $410 billion taken in by the country’s 1 million-plus nonprofits,” according to the Forbes feature.
At Lutheran Services in America, we gratefully acknowledge our generous partners for their gifts and commitment to our work. Together, we’re making a measurable difference in the lives of one in 50 Americans we serve each year. Philanthropic support makes it possible to advance key efforts that:
- Strengthen families and ensure children are safe and connected to their communities, schools, and jobs and families;
- Expand services that improve the health of vulnerable seniors and help them remain living independently at home and in their community; and
- Innovate and scale solutions to some of the most complex health and social challenges we face as a nation today.
It is thanks to the generous support from our friends and partners that we can look forward to making even more progress in 2019!
