Catherine's Legacy

In 2002, Mercy High School founded Catherine's Legacy Society in order to honor those donors, who have named Mercy High School Burlingame as a beneficiary of their estate plan, for their vision and generosity. The wonderful thing about planned giving is that it can greatly benefit you and your loved ones, while also helping others - in this case, the students at Mercy High School. Regardless of income level or age, anyone can make a huge impace on Mercy's future by establishing a planned gift.

Individuals or foundations are eligible for membership in Catherine's Legacy if they have made Mercy a beneficiary in their will, retirement plan, IRA or life insurance policy, or if a planned gift was established to benefit Mercy. Throughout the year, members receive Mercy publications including the Annual Report.

If you qualify for membership, but are not yet listed as a member on our records, please let us know.

More information can be found under the Planned Giving section of our website.
