October Begins the Season for Planning Ahead
Create a Personal Legacy with LUM Planned Giving
October brings cooler nights, pumpkins, colorful trees, football, having fun outdoors with family, and preparing. In addition to preparing for the winter — consider also preparing for the future.
Continuing your support of Lafayette Urban Ministry beyond your own lifetime takes “planning.” Estate Planning strategy is a win-win for you and LUM. In addition to the altruistic benefits, your charitable gift to LUM brings tax relief — and also allows you to make a larger gift to LUM than you could from your income alone. The benefits of this type of donation are attractive, whether you use cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance or a retirement plan.
Meet with your professional advisor to learn more about planned giving and naming LUM in your will. Wes Tillett, LUM executive director, would enjoy meeting with you when you are ready to begin the conversation (wtillett@LUMserve.org | 765-423-2691). Whatever you decide, enjoy this season with your family and friends and think for a moment about the mission of Lafayette Urban Ministry and the families we serve.
