Remember LUM These Holy Days

Prayer | Fasting | Giving

The Lenten Season has ended and Passover has begun. Many of us have been spending time “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. Wes Tillett, LUM executive director, is eager to meet with you to help you leave a legacy and fulfill your giving goals of supporting LUM. All you have to do is email or call Wes Tillett to begin the process (wtillett@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 holiday.

Plan Ahead for 2020 – Consider a Legacy Gift


What better goal for the upcoming NEW year than to create your own personal legacy by continuing your support of the mission of Lafayette Urban Ministry beyond your own lifetime? During our lifetimes, we support the families in our community with our gifts to LUM, but creating a legacy through Planned Giving means our ministry will continue for all perpetuity.

Giving to Lafayette Urban Ministry is 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.

The kind of help provided by Lafayette Urban Ministry to this community doesn’t happen automatically and won’t happen without your support. Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” At the Lafayette Urban Ministry we take those words seriously.

We know that offering homeless people food and shelter and lightening their load is the first step to helping them build better lives. But we also know it’s only the first step. That’s why LUM offers dozens of innovative programs of service, assistance, self-help, education and social justice advocacy. There will always be the poor, the sick and the disenfranchised in our world. We will always need to help provide these vital services to the families in our community. We hope you’ll help this important work to continue by giving generously.

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 would consider a legacy gift that would support Lafayette Urban Ministry in your plans. Create your legacy this new year to support the mission of LUM now and beyond your lifetime.

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 Joe Micon, LUM executive director, who is eager to meet with you (jmicon@lumserve.org | 765-423-2691).
