One of the easiest ways to support Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach is to arrange a bequest, or gift, in your will or trust. Bequests are flexible, allowing you to provide for your loved ones and those organizations you care about most. A bequest is simple to set up, and can be arranged by working with your financial advisor.

You can make a gift: 

  • of a specific amount or percentage of your estate

  • of a specific asset (house, car, property, etc.)

  • or of the residue of your estate after other obligations are fulfilled.

You can even name Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach as a contingent beneficiary. In this case, Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach would not receive a gift unless your other beneficiaries were no longer living.
