All individuals who have made a planned gift to Luther Seminary are automatically enrolled as members of The Heritage Society. The Heritage Society was established to recognize, thank, and steward individuals and families who have made planned gifts to Luther Seminary. We are grateful to society members, who live out their Christian faith and values through their planned gifts to Luther Seminary.
The Heritage Society was started in 1987 by the Alumni Council as a way for its members to show gratitude for their seminary education through estate gifts. The Society was then expanded to include friends of the Seminary who wanted to support Luther through their estate plans. Countless scholarships, professorships, and programmatic support have been funded with planned gifts benefiting current and future generations for years to come.
Thank You and Recognition
To say thank you to Heritage Society members, members have the option to receive the NATIVITY sculpture of the Holy Family, commissioned exclusively for the Heritage Society. Artists Todd and Nadine Weber created the statutes as a unique expression of Luther's history and no two sculptures are alike. To learn more, click here.
In addition, members also receive:
- Complimentary invitations to special events and seminars
- Seminary updates and publications, including Luther's flagship publication, Story magazine
Heritage Society members are stakeholders in the seminary's mission to educate leaders called and sent with the good news of Jesus Christ into a world of many cultures and religions.
