Giving Directly to AFLC World Missions
Mark your gift to World Missions, and send it to our offices at,
AFLC World Missions
3110 East Medicine Lake Blvd.
Minneapolis, MN 55441
Giving Through Your Local Church
Giving through your home AFLC congregation is very handy for many people. You can give through your church and the church will forward your gift to us.
Please visit our Online Giving page for details.
It is possible to give to AFLC World Missions through automatic withdrawals from your bank account. Automated giving takes the work out of giving on a regular basis. It is especially useful for those who send monthly support to missionaries.
Simply click on the automated giving form below and a PDF window with the form will open. Fill out the form and send it to AFLC World Missions in the mail.
Donating Thrivent Financial Choice Dollars
Eligible members are given Choice Dollars, based on insurance premiums, contract values and Thrivent Financial volunteer leadership. Choice Dollars can be directed to Lutheran organizations you prefer nationwide, including your local Lutheran congregation. If you are eligible to direct Choice Dollars, you will receive a letter in the mail at the point you become eligible. If you are unsure of your eligibility, review the eligibility requirements, login or register to view your eligibility and Choice Dollars.
Here is the link to use to search their website: https://www.thrivent.com/thriventchoice/program/dollars_details/search.html
It will take you to the Choice Dollars Detail Page. On that page, use the following specifications to search.
- Organization name: AFLC Missions Corporation
- City/State: Plymouth, MN (typing Minneapolis, MN does not work)
- Organization type: Other Lutheran Organization
Also on that page, is a section that states: “If you wish to direct Choice Dollars designated to you, use the Choice Dollars Search page”. When you choose that link, you will be asked to login using your ID and Password to make your selection.
If you would like your gift designated to AFLC World Missions, please send us a follow-up email stating your wishes, otherwise the gift will be split between AFLC Home and World Missions.
Annuities and Estates
Many people want to continue spreading the Gospel around the world even after they die. This can be done by listing AFLC World Missions as the beneficiary on your will, life insurance or annuity.
Gifts from estates have been a great blessing to our world wide work throughout the years.
Designating Gifts to World Missions
Have you been thinking about contributing to the work of World Missions but don’t know where to designate your gift? This will be a helpful guide. World Missions has three separate funds:
All of our work on the fields, as well as our administrative expenses in the US come from this fund. Ministries supported from this fund would include:
- National Church work in Brazil, India & Mexico
- Miriam Infant Home
- Bible School and Seminary in Brazil
- Pastoral funding in India
- Administrative costs in the US
Support for our missionaries comes from this fund. Missionaries are required to raise their own personal support through commitments and regular monthly giving. When you designate your gift to a particular missionary you are funding their:
- Medical & Pension
- All other expenses
Special projects would include any non budgeted projects needed on the mission field. This could be anything from food and relief to church buildings. A list of approved special projects can be found on our website. Special Projects are exciting to give to, and easy to raise funds for, but do not contribute to the day to day expenses needed for ministry on the field.
