Planned Giving – Becoming a Steward of the Mission

Planned Giving involves making gifts to Mercer Street Friends which will generally not take effect until sometime in the future, whether during your lifetime or thereafter. Such gifts provide an opportunity for you to leave a legacy by supporting Mercer Street Friends’ mission for the long term. Many, if not most, of such gifts can provide significant tax benefits, whether to your estate and beneficiaries or to you if made during your lifetime.

Your planned gift, regardless of size, can be a precious legacy to ensure the future of Mercer Street Friends and its mission in a profound and meaningful way and will qualify you as an honored Steward of the Mission.

To learn more about Planned Giving opportunities with Mercer Street Friends, please contact the Director of Advancement, Phyllis Stoolmacher at pstoolmacher@mercerstreetfriends.org or call 609-396-1506.
