Gifts of cash are tax-deductible and the easiest to value. Mercy Care Foundation can accept cash gifts by check or credit card, over the phone, or online. Matching gifts can double or triple your gift to Mercy Care Foundation. If you work for a company that matches charitable gifts, please obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office and send it along with your contribution. All gifts should be made payable to Mercy Care Foundation. Print out a Donation Form using the link below.

Planned gifts, unlike cash donations, are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income. This type of giving may also allow you to provide current income along with current or future tax advantages, while providing future support for those served by Mercy Care. While some may think that gift planning is only for the “wealthy,” even people of modest means can make a philanthropic difference. The most typical type of planned gift is through a bequest, but there are many options. Learn how others have made an impact through their acts of giving to Mercy Care by clicking here.

Stock and Other Appreciated Securities
A gift of marketable securities that have been owned for more than one year provide a donor with two tax benefits: a charitable income tax deduction and a waiver of the capital gains tax. For tax purposes, the value of the gift is the mean market value of the securities on the day of the gift. For donors in higher tax brackets, these tax benefits may reduce the out-of-pocket cost of a gift of securities by half.
