LCMS Deaconess Biographies Project


The Deaconess Biographies Project needs ongoing financial support to collect biographical information and sustain these efforts for years to come. Money will be needed to facilitate research, preserve the collation in acid-free archive files and boxes, and to produce the final stage Biographical Encyclopedia.  If you would like to join this endeavor and make a gift to the Project please do so. Since the Deaconess Biographies Project is sponsored by Concordia Deaconess Conference,  a 501(c)3 organization, gifts are tax deductible.

Give a gift in honor of a relative, friend, or deaconess.  Gifts may also be given as memorials in memory of a sainted relative, friend, or deaconess.  Please indicate this information on your donation form or in the response box provided below.
