Planned Giving

TeaThe Legacy of Mercy Society, established in 2007, is reserved for Mercymount donors who choose to make a bequest to the school. Alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and friends are invited to consider a planned gift.

Planned Giving comprises many different opportunities for donors to consider. They range from a straightforward gift to a simple insurance policy which designates Mercymount Country Day School as the beneficiary. It also includes complicated trusts and charitable gift annuities. Property and/or possessions are also options for planned gifts; these gifts can either be used by the school or sold for the proceeds.

Banking Officers or Estate Lawyers can provide the best information regarding all of the choices available and appropriate for consideration by both the school and yourself, as a donor.

For information regarding how you can join this visionary group of Mercymount donors, contact the Office of Advancement at 401-333-5919 x14. If you have already made a bequest to Mercymount, please inform the Director of Advancement to be included in this exceptional group. A copy of the bequest would be appreciated to be held by the school for future reference.

“Be sure you have a comfortable cup of tea
for them when I am gone.”
