Leave a Mercy Foundation Legacy

You can create a legacy by making a planned gift to the Mercy  Foundation to support a 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 the Mercy  Foundation provide health care, education and other vital services for all who walk through our doors well into the future.

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.
