Lutheran Foundation of Texas (LFOT) was founded in 1960 in response to a donor whose desire was to give a tract of real estate to the Texas District of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS). Since then, we have grown into a full-service planned giving foundation managing $41 million of assets held in more than 400 accounts. We operate as a charitable, non-profit, tax-exempt ministry. Through our mission we help individuals and families, congregations, and agencies provide planned gifts to Christian ministries and other charities. In 2015 we distributed $1.8 million for that purpose.
