Remembering LUM This Lenten Season

Give | Fast | Pray

There are only a few more days until the end of the Lenten Season. Many of us have been “preparing” through prayer (justice towards God), fasting (justice toward self), and almsgiving (justice toward your neighbors). As you reflect on giving — perhaps you would consider a legacy gift to LUM — an organization pledged to fighting for justice for you and your neighbors.

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 well as LUM.

Meet 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 will remember Lafayette Urban Ministry in your will. Once you’re ready, let us know. Joe Micon, LUM executive director, is eager to meet with you to help you leave a legacy and fulfill your giving goals of supporting LUM. Simply email or call Joe Micon to begin the process (jmicon@lumserve.org | 765-423-2691). More information on Giving to LUM may be found at lumserve.org/donate.

Whatever you decide — we sincerely hope you have a fruitful Lenten journey and a blessed Easter.

Justice Toward God, Self & Your Neighbors



The Lenten Season began yesterday — Ash Wednesday — and will continue for 40 days commencing on Holy Thursday, April 13.

Many of us will “prepare” during your journey of Lent through prayer (justice towards God), fasting (justice toward self), and almsgiving (justice toward your neighbors).

As we reflect on Giving — perhaps you would consider a legacy gift to LUM—an organization pledged to fight for justice for your neighbors. Through Planned Giving you are able to create your own personal legacy by continuing to support Lafayette Urban Ministry beyond your own lifetime.

During our lifetimes, we support our neighbors with our gifts to LUM. Why not create a legacy through Planned Giving so our ministry will continue after you and I are no longer able to give. It’s a win-win Estate Planning strategy for you (the donor) and LUM. 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.

We are ready and willing to help you leave a legacy and fulfill your philanthropic goals of supporting LUM. Meet 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 will remember the Lafayette Urban Ministry in your will. Create your legacy to support the mission of LUM now and beyond your lifetime.

Creasy Springs – Easter Program Benefits LUM

2015-04-04 Eggstravaganza 004 (2)This past Saturday, the staff and residents at Creasy Springs Health Campus hosted a wildly successful Eggstravaganza. Hundreds of children & their families showed up for an afternoon of fun which included an Easter egg hunt, refreshments, prizes & pictures with the Easter Bunny. A few lucky kids even won new bicycles just for finding the special “golden” egg. (See photos below.)

Best of all — the proceeds from Eggstravaganza support the programs at Lafayette Urban Ministry. Thanks to Creasy Springs Health Campus for their continued support of LUM.
