How to Financially Support the LWF Jerusalem Program

LWF Jerusalem is supported financially through the contributions of Lutheran churches, private individuals, and organizations that work for justice, peace, and humanitarian aid. The generosity of these donors provides healthcare, education, and emergency relief to Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

All contributions of any amount are helpful and appreciated. LWF Jerusalem will send you a receipt acknowledging the arrival of your donation. If you wish to donate money to a specific project, please indicate which project on the memo line, or in an accompanying note. If you are making a donation by bank transfer, please send us an email at info@lwfjerusalem.org or lwfjerusalem@lwfjerusalem.org so we know to expect your donation. 

If you are contributing to the Mount of Olives Housing Project (MOHP), please send an email to mohp@lwfjerusalem.org indicating that you have sent a check or transferred funds electronically. Be sure to clearly indicate the amount and that the funds are intended for the MOHP. Please provide us with your name, address, phone, email, and congregation name and city.
