The Urban depends on the generosity of participating congregations and individual members for the support of our operations and ministries.

The MNO Synod supports the Urban on a monthly basis. We are currently receiving $15,000/year ($1,250/mo.) but this could change at any time.  Our annual budget for 2018 was $112,150 and the MNO supports 13% of our budget at this time.


The Urban is a charitable organization and income tax receipts will be issued for all donations.  To contribute:


1) Donate in the plate – include an additional amount in your regular weekly offering designated for the Urban…it will get to us.


2) Set up an automatic withdrawal from your account. 

Contact Rhonda Abraham to set this up for you.

5) United Way (Donor Directed Giving Service):

Those who work often are able to have payroll deductions for their charitable contributions through the United Way Campaign.  United Way forms have a section at the end which allows people to add charities that are not listed as regular recipients.  Donors have the option to add the Lutheran Urban Ministry and they can specify how much of their donation they want to come to us and how much to the United Way.


To add us, they need the following information:

Lutheran Urban Ministry

Our registered Charity number is: 85198 8592 RR0001
