The 40 Days of Giving starts on Ash Wednesday

Date posted: Thursday 25 January 2018

This Lent, ELCA World Hunger is lifting up several programs in India, Malawi and the U.S. that urgently need your support. These programs range from health & wellness, agriculture, income equality, and refugee and women's rights. Choose a program and walk alongside our neighbors as they address hunger in their communities.


Visit to learn more and to begin planning your congregation's participation and fundraising. You also will find project-specific bulletin inserts available for download. Online giving will open on Ash Wednesday (February 14) and continue through Easter (April 1). 


Please help us, as people of faith in the ELCA, make sure that we can continue to fund this lifesaving, life-changing work in 2018.
