You Can Make a Difference!

There are many gift opportunities to consider. As you work with a professional advisor to create a trust that is appropriate for you, your family and your financial situation, and be sure to include Mercy House. Here are just a few options which may work for you…

  • A Bequest - Include Mercy House in your will. You can create a will if you do not currently have one, or add a codicil if you have an existing will. You can designate a percentage of your estate or a fixed amount. You can also give a residuary bequest for all or a portion of your estate after all debts, expenses, and other beneficiaries have been paid.
  • A Gift of Stock - You can convert appreciated stock into a planned gift and avoid capital gains taxes. You may use the stock as an outright gift upon your death or to fund a charitable gift annuity.
  • Gift Annuities - This popular option allows you to give a significant gift to Mercy House and receive an income stream for life. Receive a generous interest rate on your investment and also receive a portion of your income tax free.
  • 401(K) - By naming Mercy House as the beneficiary of your 401(K) account, IRA, Roth IRA, or other tax-advantaged retirement savings plan, you help Mercy House and help reduce taxes for your heirs.
  • Life Insurance - Name Mercy House as the beneficiary on a new or existing life insurance policy. The premiums are tax-deductible.
  • Real Estate - Make a gift of property to Mercy House. You receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property and you also avoid having to pay capital gains tax.
