Legacy Society

Together, Toward Tomorrow is our 2019 annual fund and legacy campaign. To date, hundreds of donors, just like you, have designated gifts to Lutheran Ministries of Mercy (LMM) and our affiliates. In part, these gifts will help us sustain everlasting impact.

As part of our on-going desire to learn more about you and those who have remembered us with a legacy, estate or planned gift, we have created the Lutheran Ministries of Mercy Legacy Society. When you notify LMM that you have remembered one of us in your giving you become a member of the Society.

Donor benefits include:
  • Special communication from our President & CEO
  • Invitation to events 
  • Recognition in our Legacy society Honor Roll (unless you chose an anonymous gift)
Ways to enjoy a legacy gift during your lifetime:

1. Enjoy Financial Flexibility
Legacy gifts offer valuable tax benefits to those who support LMM and our affiliates whether it is a bequest, a will or trust, a designation in a retirement plan or life insurance policy, making a legacy gift is a wise way to give! 

2. Support what matters most
As a donor to LMM you can designate gifts to an area of personal significance to you including direct support of Filling Memorial Home of Mercy, Luther Home of Mercy Lutheran Social Services, volunteer service, ministry and other direct client assistance programs. Many gifts are unrestricted, which helps LMM address its most pressing needs. 

3. Make it simple
Including LMM in your legacy decisions can be made very easy. As a life event such as marriage, a birth of a child or grandchild prompt you to create or update a will, remember a gift to us. Beneficiary designations can be made in any amount and will be valued forever. 

4. Be Counted
Rather than wait until you are gone, let us recognize you today. When you inform us of your gift, you are also making a powerful statement to family and friends about the role that God and philanthropy played in your life. As a member of our Legacy Society, you will be counted among our greatest blessings.
