About Lutheran Church Charities
Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) mission is to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need. LCC was founded in 1947 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry to help support Christian human care ministries and is an RSO (Recognized Service Organization) of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We operate with a Dollar In – Dollar Out funding process where EVERY dollar given for a cause goes directly to that cause or need. LCC works through LCMS churches to help individuals and families. Headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, LCC serves nationally and internationally and never charges those we serve. All contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. LCC relies solely on individual and church contributions and does not receive any District, Synod, State or Federal funding.
LCC is a faith-based ministry and coordinates the deployment of thousands of volunteers for Disaster Response, Crisis Response, and Mission projects in the United States and abroad.
LCC K-9 Ministries include the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry serving the Military, Veterans, and their families, and the LCC K-9 Police Ministry serving police officers and their families.
LCC Disaster Response Ministries include Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) training and volunteer teams with expertise in the area of chainsaw, heavy equipment, debris removal, flood recovery, and emotional and spiritual care.
LCC Human Care Ministries work with pastors and congregations to pass through donor financial assistance, in-kind donations, volunteer people resources, emotional or spiritual support.
Hearts of Mercy & Compassion (HMC), Crosses for Losses provides a physical and spiritual symbol through the giving of hearts and crosses to families and friends who have suffered a loss or are experiencing the illness of a loved one. An HMC can also be given to celebrate a victory, honor service, as an expression of love, or to be an encouragement in the face of adversity. Given as a gift, each HMC provides the love and hope of Jesus through presence and prayer. Upon request, Lutheran Church Charities, working through churches, can provide an HMC at no charge.
Other LCC ministries include international and domestic ministries, church worker support, WORD Bible Studies, Congregational Preparedness, and support for pass-through needs and causes.
