free service to help you maximize what the lord has given to you

Hales Corners Lutheran Church and the HCL Foundation have partnered with Gift Planning Services, an organization led by CEO Jennifer Nohelty, to offer free, no obligation consultations to the People of God wherever they may be in their planning. From reviewing an existing plan with fresh eyes or providing guidance to build a plan from scratch, Jennifer’s services are available free of charge to Hales Corners Lutheran families.

When you schedule time with Jennifer, she will show you how to:

  • Leave MORE to family in a way that will help and not harm

  • Leave MORE to charity than you ever thought possible

  • Avoid paying unnecessary taxes
