Leave a Legacy

Please invest in Mercy by the Sea’s future by including the Center in your estate plans. A legacy gift made through your will, stock transfer, trust, retirement accounts or life insurance is a meaningful way to ensure that the Center can continue its transformational work. It’s a way to give back, to return some of the blessings you received during your lifetime through the Center’s programs, retreats and events.

Planning a bequest now allows you to maintain control of your assets during your lifetime, while giving you peace of mind knowing that you have contributed to the Center’s continued ministry. Should your circumstances change, you can always modify your bequest.  Furthermore, gifts from your estate are exempt from federal taxes.

We hope you will consider one of the planned giving avenues. If you have questions about which of the different giving options are best for you, please consult with a financial planner.
