Planned Giving

By remembering Mercy by the Sea in your estate plans, you make a difference in the lives of those who follow. A legacy gift made through your will, stock transfer, trust, retirement accounts or life insurance is a meaningful way to sustain Mercy by the Sea in its efforts to support personal and societal transformation. 

You can make a difference in the lives that follow. 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.
