About the Synod Campaign

We are calling our Synod-wide campaign, Because of You in honor of your incredible work creating heart-felt local worshipping communities and ministries that have helped untold thousands of people in our area and throughout the world.

Our congregations and ministries are serving our neighbors. If these caring communities were to disappear, the well-being of many would change drastically. In some cases, lives would be at stake. The Because of You campaign is a way forward in support of these vital ministries and services.

The purpose of this campaign is to enable us to do even more together as a Synod and as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. As followers of Jesus, we are challenged to care more, reach more people, and make the Good News even more relevant in the lives of our neighbors. Together, we are linking arms with new leaders, new communities of faith, congregations in renewal, and with ministries around the world that are providing lifesaving help in times of great need.


Synod Campaign Goals

Between 2017 and 2019, NW WA Synod's Because of You campaign seeks to raise $3 million in current and deferred gifts, all over and above congregations' annual ministry support.


Because of You and your gift to this campaign, and we will rise to the challenge. Every generation has had to reassess, raise finances, and make the changes relevant to keep them growing in their time and place.
