Mite Update

Dear LWML'ers, 

In May we collected $10,276.34 for mites.  Our delegates to the District Convention will be voting electronically for the new mission grants and Mite Goal.  These will be announced at the convention June 17 and 18 in Willmar.  Please check back here the first week in July when I should have the total of mites going forward from the 2020 - 2022 biennium, mites collected since May 1, 2022, and the total offering for mites from the convention.  The new goal and the total of all the mites for this new biennium will then be shown on the home page graph. 

Praise to the Lord, the ladies of LWML Minnesota South District have been very generous. Thank you. 

Please continue to give mites so that we can meet our promise to LWML of 25% of $265,000.00. All mites received above our goal will be put towards our 2022 – 2024 biennium mission goal.

One of the objectives of the LWML Minnesota South is to gather funds for mission grants. If you are unable to give mites at your local society this month, consider using the link “Give Online” on the front page of our website under the Mite Giving circle graph.

  • There are many ways our goal can be met through mite contributions, Mission Grant Memorials, Mission Grant Donations, Thrivent Choice dollars, Prayer Service offerings, Amazon Smile or Joyful Response.
  • Joyful Response is a way to use direct deposit each month. When you sign up, funds are automatically transferred from your bank account on the date you specify.  This form is listed under Resources/Forms.
  • If you are shopping on Amazon, go to Smile and list Lutheran Women's Missionary League Minnesota South as your charity. We receive 0.5% of your purchases in cash for mites.
  • For someone special give an honorarium to LWML MN South mites.
  • Donate electronically by clicking on the "Give Online" button on the website home page.
  • Contribution forms for Zones, Societies and Individual Members can be found under Resources/Forms/Contribution Forms on our website home page.

It's a cardboard box (3-1/8" x 1-3/4" x 2-1/4") designed by LWML to receive thank offerings, above and beyond our regular church giving.  It holds pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars and checks.   

Mite boxes are FREE and can be used by LWML members, their families and friends.  Ask any LWML member about the box.  Take it home and place wherever you can feed it: dressing table, office desk, laundry room, kitchen counter, or even the car, etc.
