LCEF: Something for Everyone

For all the unique characteristics of each generation, there are also areas of

common interest. For example, check out who's on Facebook these days!

 60 percent of adults ages 50-64 years old that are online, stay connected by using Facebook. Compare that to 79 percent from the 30-49 age group and 84 percent of adults 18-29 years of age.*

When it comes to your financial needs, Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) offers investments for everyone from babies to grandparents.


No matter your age, you'll have this in common: helping to share the Gospel, saving for the future and using your blessings wisely through your LCEF investments.


Invest today! For rates and details, visit or contact Diana Raasch,  LCEF District Vice President at the South Wisconsin District.
