Prayer | Fasting | Giving
In many religious faiths, this is the most celebrated time of year. It is a time for prayer (justice towards your faith), fasting (justice toward yourself), and giving & serving (justice toward your neighbors).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.
