Leave a Mercy Legacy

You can create a legacy by making a planned gift to Mercy Foundation to support a Sisters of Mercy ministry or program most important to you. A planned gift offers you the opportunity to secure income for you and your family, benefit from current tax incentives and help Mercy Foundation provide health care, education, affordable housing and other vital services for the poor and elderly well into the future.

Explore gift planning by starting with Gifts Anyone Can Make and by taking advantage of tools such as the Legacy Planner™, personal calculators and the Will Planning Wizard to help you achieve your philanthropic and financial goals.

Tip of the Day

If this is a high-earning year for you, a gift of cash will enable you to offset more taxable income than from a gift of appreciated securities.

You can claim the deduction up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI) with a gift of cash. On the contrary, you can claim only up to 30 percent of AGI with a gift of appreciated securities.*

*You may claim deductions in excess of the percentage limits during the five years after your gift is made.
