Leave a Legacy with LUM Through Planned Giving
Summer is in full swing and many are travelling and having fun outdoors with friends and family. But it is also a season for planning. At LUM planning has begun for programs like Hunger Hike, Community Thanksgiving, and Jubilee Christmas. You too could be spending some time this summer planning for the future and creating a way to continue supporting Lafayette Urban Ministry beyond your own lifetime. With Planned Giving your support of the LUM ministry will continue in perpetuity.
It’s a win-win. Your charitable gift to LUM 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 can make this type of donation attractive to you as well as LUM. Consider also remembering Lafayette Urban Ministry in your will.
We are ready and willing to help you leave a legacy and fulfill your philanthropic goals of supporting LUM. First, 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 your IRA, 401(k) plan, or savings bonds) to Lafayette Urban Ministry. If you are interested in beginning the conversation, please email or call Wes Tillett, LUM executive director (firstname.lastname@example.org | 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.
