Minneapolis, MN 55435

Your IRA account trustee, financial planner, Donor Advised Fund manager or employer may send checks directly to us at the address above, too. When possible please indicate the purpose on your request (or send us a note telling us what to expect) to help us properly receive  your gift.

We are a small organization so no staff name is necessary. If an attention line is required, please use DONATION PROCESSING. 

Planned or Legacy Gifts

Make a lasting contribution to ensure that LPGM’s programs continue well into the future. Here are several ways to make a financial commitment from your estate plans:

  • Bequests: Make a gift to support our future work by including LPGM in your will or living trust which offers an estate tax charitable deduction. These gifts can provide a critical base of reliable support for our programs.
  • Retirement Plan Assets: Use your tax deferred retirement plan to continue supporting our work. If you have an IRA and are over the age of 70½, you can make a gift directly from your account without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal.

  • Charitable Trusts: Explore ways a life income gift can pay income to you or your chosen beneficiary for a term of years or for life and also provide future support for our global ministry.
  • Life Insurance: Naming LPGM in a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for family support or liquidity may be an excellent vehicle for a gift. Consult your tax advisor to see if this type of planning makes sense for you and your loved ones.

Donor Advised Funds

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) allows you to contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a charitable organization like LPGM and become eligible for an immediate tax deduction. You can then recommend grants from your fund over time. By using a DAF, you centralize your giving, making record-keeping easier.  

Information to share with your DAF administrator:
