The LHF Match

2024 06 LHF Match Internal

Are you interested in supporting the LHF mission for the first time? The time is now!

Considering a gift to the LHF mission? There's never been a better opportunity for you to help put books about Jesus into the hands of new believers!

An anonymous LHF supporter has renewed their commitment to helping LHF translate and publish good Lutheran books for churches around the world.

Now, this supporter is offering an incredible opportunity: Any individual, church or organization who hasn't given a mission gift to LHF before will have their new donations matched, up to $5,000, giving your gift DOUBLE the impact!

This program will continue until the limit of $150,000 has been met. This means that your $25 gift becomes $50. $50 becomes $100. $500 becomes $1,000 for printing the books that introduce people to Jesus!

If you've given a gift before, pass the word along to your church, Sunday school superintendent, friends and family who haven't!


"It's incredible how far our American dollars can go overseas," said Rev. Matthew Heise, LHF executive director. "Most books - even brightly illustrated Bible storybooks - cost only about $5 to publish. Imagine: $50 prints 10 Lutheran hymnals for a congregation in South Sudan. $100 provides 20 copies of the Kusaal language Child's Garden for a Lutheran school classroom in Ghana.

"This matching gift is a wonderful blessing from the Lord that, if fully realized, will allow LHF to publish around 30,000 books for our Lutheran brothers and sisters around the world!"

Don't wait - help LHF realize this goal! Click here to help LHF introduce people around the world to the Savior, Jesus Christ. You can choose to designate your gift toward LHF's work in one of 30 different geographic regions, or you can direct LHF to use your gift in the area of greatest need. No extra paperwork is required; your gifts will automatically qualify for the match.

"If you've made a gift toward the LHF sometime in the past year, I encourage you to forward this information to your family and friends, even your congregation's mission committee," said Rev. Heise. "The Holy Spirit works powerfully through your gifts!"

* Please note: The maximum individual gift match for this program is $150,000. Grants and bequests are not eligible for matching.
