Maximize Your Giving
Did you know that you can maximize your contributions by selecting a payment method with smaller processing fees? HCL is charged 3% for credit card transactions and 2% for debit card transactions while ACH (Automated Clearing House) transactions from a checking or savings account carry a fee of only 0.5%. Every penny counts! Minimizing fees will ensure that even more of your generous gifts will go toward making a direct impact on the ministry of HCL. To set this up as part of your giving, simply have your checking or savings account and bank routing numbers handy for initial setup.
Giving online has never been easier! With just a few clicks, set up one-time or recurring gifts via bank account, debit or credit card.

Support Our School
At Hales Corners Lutheran School, we strive to provide a rich, Christ-driven educational experience for our students.

In addition to volunteer opportunities, we also have many fundraising efforts available to support HCLS, to create a variety of ways and make it as easy as possible for people like you to support our school, our students and, ultimately, the difference that each generation of students can make in the world for Christ.

Sharing Your Gifts is a truly special way to honor the Lord while making a tangible impact on the world around you.
Hales Corners Lutheran is sustained by your gracious gifts which are critical for driving our mission
as well as supporting the many ministries that provide us with the tools needed to grow in our faith.
The bold, open-handed question we’re suggesting you pray asks:
“God, out of what You have placed in my hands, what would You have me give to Your work through Hales Corners Lutheran?”
Giving generously takes faith because you have to trust that when you give away your money, God will still provide for your immediate needs.
The truth is, everything we have was given to us by God, along with the responsibility to manage it. When you invest in God’s work, there is no risk. You will get the highest possible return on your investment, guaranteed by the Word of God!
If you have questions, please contact Colleen Gore in the Accounting Department at 414-529-6700 ext. 128 during regular business hours.
