Your gift allows LVC to match bright Volunteers with organizations important to the social justice movement. With your help, we will change the world!

LVC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Gifts to LVC are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. LVC is an excellent steward of your dollars—over 80% of our spending goes directly to support and programs for our Volunteers. You can view our finance and audit page for more details on how our money is spent.

You can donate online right now by visiting us on Give Direct. To be a sustaining supporter of LVC, please consider setting up automatic, monthly donations.

Please note: We use a nonprofit service to process our credit card transactions. GIVEDIRECT is the name that will appear on your credit card statement – not Lutheran Volunteer Corps.  Using a 3rd party helps us keep our costs low and allows us to spend more time and money on our programs!  American Express transactions cost LVC a 2.25% processing fee, but there is no fee using Visa or Mastercard!

Know someone in LVC this year? Check out their First Giving pages where you can learn more about their story. Each Volunteer has been challenged to raise at least $500 during their LVC year to support the overall mission of LVC. We also use First Giving for some of our time-specific fundraisers. Thanks for your support of this awesome cohort of Volunteers!

If you prefer to remit your donation by mail, please make your check payable to Lutheran Volunteer Corps and send it to:
