How are funds spent?
All LBTC funds are distributed to support programs and projects approved by the organization. Should a donor choose to restrict a contribution for use in a particular program or project, we will honour that restriction, with the understanding that, when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the organization, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.

Naming Charities in Your Will is Serious Business
Recently the Canadian Council of Christian Charities suggested that estate-planners may not understand the importance of having charity names as the legal name on their will.{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20See%20the%20next%20Messengers%20of%20Christ%20for%20more%20detail%20-%20available%20mid-October%202010.%20%2D%2D%3E

To avoid issues, LBTC encourages you to add the following clause to your will:
"If any of the charitable organizations named in my Will has ceased to exist, or has amalgamated with another charitable organization, or has changed its name or objects, the bequest provided for the named charity shall not fail, but my trustee shall pay the same to the charitable organization which my trustee considers most closely fulfills the objects I intended to benefit."

LBTC is linked with other Lutheran mission organizations in Canada through CLAIM which has an agreement to work with Lutheran Foundation Canada to assist individuals as they plan their finances today and after they have joined Christ in eternity.

​​Lasting gifts may be designated or undesignated and include gifts of shares, life insurance policies and much more. There are definite income tax savings when financial planning has been set up properly.
