Cornerstone Legacy Logo

The Cornerstone Legacy Society recognizes donors who have made a commitment to support Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women’s future through a bequest, charitable trust, gift annuity, life insurance policy, or other type of planned gift.

Planned gifts are critical in supporting Our Lady of Mercy – they help us provide the school with a sustainable stream of resources to provide fnancial assistance to more than 40% of our students, invest in the facilities, and recruit and retain gifted faculty. Through the Cornerstone Legacy Society, Our Lady of Mercy has the opportunity to thank and recognize those alumnae and friends who have made the selfless commitment of a planned gift. By joining the Cornerstone Legacy Society, Mercy can celebrate the impact donors’ generosity will have on generations to come. With a planned giving commitment, donors can maximize their ability to meet personal fnancial objectives – and with some gifts, actually guarantee income during their lifetimes – leaving an indelible legacy at Mercy and with countless “Mercy Girls.”

There are several ways to join the Cornerstone Legacy Society
• Leave Mercy in your will (bequest)
• Make a tax-smart, IRA rollover to Mercy from your required distribution
• Guarantee income for you and/or your family by creating a charitable trust or gift annuity
• Create a gift that helps you transfer assets to your heirs (charitable lead trust)
