Making Giving a New Habit this New Year
As we all look forward to a fresh start in 2021, we encourage you to establish a new habit for giving with impact and intention this year.

Hundreds of LMM donors make recurring, secure gifts via the “donate” button on the LMM website. Many people find that this is a seamless way to make tax-deductible, budget-friendly contributions throughout the year that support the life-changing programs for people in our community.

We’ve made the process of establishing a recurring gift very much like starting a new habit. 

Step 1: Cue up your recurring gift on our donate page: Visit LMM's 'donate' page, enter your contact information and desired gift amount

Step 2: Make giving a habit: Determine and enter your donation frequency and payment source. 

Step 3: Celebrate: Your gift will create a positive impact in the lives of people who are oppressed, forgotten and hurting to be remembered, uplifted and healed. Your gift will also fulfill your intention of living a more engaging life.

And just like that, you’re a donor! You’ll receive a receipt from our processor, Acceptiva, in your email to let you know your donation has been made. 

To learn more about online giving, or other ways to support the work of LMM, please contact Kate Maver, Director of Development, at [email protected] or call 216-658-7204. Thank you for your compassionate generosity!
