Through thoughtful planning, individuals can contribute part of their legacy to Mercy College. The result is a contribution that delivers more benefit to Mercy College and at the same time saves you taxes, preserves your estate and may pay you a lifetime income.
Gifts are deductible from federal income tax as contributions to a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to the College are processed by the Mercy Health Foundation - Greater Toledo.
