The Million Dollar LIFE Match1 min read

“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

In January 2022, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) launched the Million Dollar Life Match, an exciting new matching grant opportunity to support LCMS congregations’ local, beginning-of-life mercy efforts.

The program offers a total of $1 million in matching grants—ranging from $1,000 to $50,000 each—to LCMS congregations. Grants will be given out in three phases during 2022 and 2023.

Eligible projects might include: Partnering with your local Christian pregnancy resource center; starting a donation center for baby items; supporting a Christian organization involved with adoption or foster care; working with your circuit to start a larger pro-life project.

How can your congregation start or expand its pro-life efforts? Find more project ideas, a list of LCMS Recognized Service Organizations and other Christian pro-life organizations, and step-by-step instructions for submitting your grant application at
