Our Mission

Lutheran Counseling & Family Services of Wisconsin puts God’s love into action by strengthening individuals, families and communities with professional mental health, addiction and adoption services because everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive.

How You Can Help

We rely on charitable donations and the generous support of our community. Because of you, we are strengthening families, lives and communities through adoption, mental health awareness, wellness and advocacy.

There are countless ways to give but no matter how you give or how much you give, your gift makes a difference.

  • Talk about mental health – continue the dialogue!
  • General donation – You can give monthly, annually or a one-time donation by using our online donation form.
  • Gifts of Honor – Is there someone who has been touched by a mental health concern, overcome an addiction or is flourishing through adoption? Honor them with a gift of support!
  • Gifts in Memory – Losing a loved one is never easy. Many find comfort in memorializing an individual through a donation in their name.
  • A Planned Gift – There are many ways to give through planned giving including wills, estate gifts, legacy gifts and/or charitable gift annuities. Your planned giving gift will help us to continue to provide programs, resources and support for those who need it. And most importantly, it will ensure that we continue to make positive changes in people’s lives, making individuals, families and communities stronger.
