Heritage Society

Leave a lasting legacy to MLM

The Heritage Society is a group of forward-thinking people who are devoted to MLM and passionate about helping the homeless and poor in metropolitan Kansas City.

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.
