Whether you are an alumna, a parent, or a friend, we all benefit from those who share our Mercy values. Through planned giving you are leaving a legacy to ensure the gifts of a Mercy education will benefit the lives of young women now and in the future. There are numerous Planned Giving options by which donors may leave a legacy of support that will have a positive impact on generations of students to come.

What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving is the process of donating planned gifts, commonly granted through wills or trusts. A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning.

Why Make a Planned Gift?

Planning your legacy can help you meet your financial and philanthropic goals. There are a variety of ways to structure a gift that can satisfy both your financial and philanthropic goals while providing you and your family with financial benefits. Some benefits of planned giving include income tax relief, reduced estate taxes, and capital gains tax savings. It is important to satisfy your wishes and keep in mind the potential tax and financial benefits.

Why Support Mercy?

When you support Mercy High School, you are investing in the next generation of Mercy graduates—women of faith, women in pursuit of academic excellence, women of influence, women of compassionate service, and proactive global citizens.
