Other Ways to Give

Donor Advised Funds

Lay Mission-Helpers Association welcomes and encourages gifts from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). If you have a DAF account, you can easily make a gift to Lay Mission-Helpers here.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) a.k.a IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

IRA owners age 70½ or over can transfer up to $100,000 to charity tax-free each year. These transfers, known as qualified charitable distributions or QCDs, offer eligible older Americans a great way to easily give to charity before the end of the year. Moreover, for those who are at least 73, QCDs count toward the IRA owner's required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year. Normally, distributions from a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA) are taxable when received. With a QCD, however, these distributions become tax-free as long as they're paid directly from the IRA to an eligible charitable organization like Lay Mission-Helpers AssociationFor more info about QCDs visit the IRS website. To make a gift to LMH from your IRA, contact your IRA trustee before the end of the current calendar year so that they can process the gift in time. 

Give a Gift to Honor Family and Friends

Give the gift of quality education, healthcare or of faith by honoring a family member or friend through a donation to the Lay Mission-Helpers Association. Your gift makes it possible for a Lay Mission-Helper to serve in mission in Catholic hospitals and schools, sharing their gifts and living their faith.

Donate Any Vehicle from Anywhere in the United States!

Lay Mission-Helpers are partnering with the Los Angeles-based Cars2Charities to be able to accept donations of any vehicles (cars, trucks, boats, etc.) from anywhere in the United States. Cars2Charities will work with donors, assist them with paperwork, schedule a vehicle pickup, and sell the vehicle for the benefit of our mission. The donor will receive a donation receipt for the amount for which the vehicle sells. I could not be easier. Just go to our vehicle donation page here and start the process.

You may also be interested becoming a member of the Msgr. Anthony Brouwers Legacy Circle by your planned giving.



We ask that you remember in your prayers the Lay Mission-Helpers currently serving around the world, those preparing to go, as well as those who have served and are now returned “veterans.” We invite the faithful to join us in our prayers that more of the laity will recognize and follow a call of service to our brothers and sisters in the missions. Pray with us the mission rosary for these intentions and the intentions of all people in the missions.
