    YES! Your financial investment, and all contributions are used locally. Every dollar given is used to finance the ministry of saving lives and transforming families.

  7. Why does WELS Lutherans for Life accept funding through United Way?

    The explanation of why we participate in the United Way Donor Choice program is available in this link .

  8. If I want to help WLFL reduce costs by not receiving mailings, how much will that save?

    Great question. We are occasionally asked to stop mailing to someone to help save the money, so it goes directly for ministry programs. It is interesting to know that an individual mailing averages $0.60. To opt out of a year's worth of mailings saves less than $6/year for one person or household.

  9. Do I need permission to use WELS Lutherans for Life content?

    Yes. With limited exceptions, all use of WELS Lutherans for Life, including and other WLFL websites content (text, photographs, graphics, etc.) requires the permission of WELS Lutherans for Life.
