The First Lutheran Church of West Okoboji has created Endowment and Endow Iowa Funds within the Okoboji Foundation Family of Funds.  These funds give us the ability to offer donors the Endow Iowa Tax Credit available only through a qualified community foundation.  With a contribution to an Endow Iowa fund Iowa taxpayers may be eligible to receive a 25% Iowa Tax CREDIT in addition to normal federal charitable income tax deductions for certain charitable gifts.  This is an exciting program that benefits both donors and the First Lutheran Church of West Okoboji.  Your contribution continues to support the church structure and programs during and after your lifetime.
