By including House of Mercy in your future plans, you can make a difference in the lives of those who need us most.

What are the most common types of planned gifts?

Stock Gifts

A gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. Avoid paying a capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction while helping House of Mercy further its mission.

Retirement Plan

A gift of your retirement assets IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plans is an excellent way to make a gift. If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime, and 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets, and your charitable support can impact the lives of many.


One of the easiest ways to honor Sister Grace…Bequests are gifts that extend beyond your lifetime, and are a thoughtful way to leave a lasting, supportive legacy to the vital work of The House.

Life Insurance

If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift and help further our mission. Contact us to learn how you can gift a life insurance policy and receive a charitable tax deduction or name House of Mercy as a beneficiary.
