FAQ's About Planned Giving

Mari Carlson, Director of Development

As the Director of Development for the Mount Olivet family, I am frequently asked about what I do.

Among my responsibilities are working with annual giving, managing capital campaigns, writing grant proposals, and helping donors plan a legacy gift for Mount Olivet Lutheran Church and its affliated ministries. It is also my pleasure to be the staff representative for Mount Olivet’s Board of Planned Giving.

It is a joy to respond to donors in the Mount Olivet family regarding how to make a planned gift, what kind of planned gift is best, what the needs of the various ministries are, and what benefits may be associated with planned gifts. Many times I meet with a donor and their advisors (attorney, accountant or financial planner) to make sure a gift fits the donor’s estate plan. All information is kept strictly confidential.

Mount Olivet Vision Partners are people who plan to make an estate gift and have told us. It Is fun for me to coordinate events to thank them and to celebrate the joys of “leaving a legacy.”

I hope you will consider making a planned gift for the Mount Olivet family. Please read the most frequently asked questions and answers about planned giving which follows. If I can assist you in any way or if you have already made a planned gift, please call me at 612.821.3150.

The Mount Olivet Family thanks you for your leadership!
