Summer is a Time for Fun & Reflection
Would You Consider a Legacy Gift with LUM?
Summertime is often a time for reflection and planning. Many of us are spending more time outdoors with our family & friends — while being cautious and staying healthy.
At LUM, plans have begun for upcoming programs like Hunger Hike, Port of Hope, Community Thanksgiving and Jubilee Christmas. Your summer planning could include fun as well as creating a personal legacy by continuing your support of Lafayette Urban Ministry beyond your own lifetime. By creating a legacy through Planned Giving your support of the LUM ministry will continue in perpetuity.
It’s a win-win Estate Planning strategy. In addition to the altruistic benefits, your charitable gift to Lafayette Urban Ministry brings tax relief — and also allows you to make a larger gift to LUM than you could make from your income alone. Whether you use cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance or a retirement plan, the benefits of Estate Planned Gifts can make this type of donation attractive to you as a well as LUM. Consider also remembering Lafayette Urban Ministry in your will.
Consult with your professional advisor to learn how informed estate planning can increase the overall value of your estate with a gift of tax-burdened assets (like IRAs, 401(k), or savings bonds) to Lafayette Urban Ministry. We hope you would consider a legacy gift that would support Lafayette Urban Ministry in your plans. We are ready and willing to help you leave a legacy and fulfill your philanthropic goals of supporting LUM. If you are interested in beginning the conversation, please email or call Wes Tillett, LUM executive director (email@example.com | 765-423-2691).
Whatever you decide — enjoy your summer with your family and friends — and think for a moment about the mission of Lafayette Urban Ministry and the families we serve.
