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

Does your home represent a large proportion of your assets? Will you need to sell it to finance your move to your next home or a retirement facility?

The charitable bargain sale is a unique gift plan in which we pay you cash for your home -- cash that you can use for the move to your next residence. The purchase price will be less than the home's market value, and that difference will produce a charitable deduction for you. In addition, your capital gains on the sale of the house, if any, are reduced in proportion to the discount you took on the sale price.
