Leave a lasting legacy to MLM
Heritage Society members leave a lasting legacy to MLM in their will or estate plan, with the charge, “As God has blessed us, go and bless others.”
There are many options for contributing to the MLM Heritage Society. Current gifts can include endowments, cash, securities, real estate and other personal property, and charitable lead trusts. Planned gifts can include bequests, gift annuities, tax deferred retirement plans, life insurance, life income gifts and remainder interest in a residence or farm.
Heritage Society members are celebrated annually at the Heritage Society luncheon, an opportunity to fellowship with other supporters and get up-to-date on current MLM programs.

This gift shall be used for (state purpose) if and for so long as the Board of Directors determines that the need exists. If the Board of Directors shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists, or it is not possible or prudent for the bequest to be used as originally intended, the Board of Director may, in its sole discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that state above.
