Planned gifts are wonderful and easy ways through which you can support Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School at no cost today.
Created in 2013 and named for the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, the Catherine McAuley Legacy Society is a group of Gwynedd alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who have pledged legacy gifts to support the mission of the school by naming Gwynedd in their will, trust, or other estate plans.
Donors of all income levels are represented, and membership alone exhibits one's deep commitment to ensuring Gwynedd’s mission to educate, inspire, and empower young women to be merciful in spirit, innovative in thought, and courageous in leadership.
If you have already named Gwynedd in your will or trust, or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance, or other asset, thank you. We invite you to fill out Gwynedd's Planned Gift Intention Form and return it to Gwynedd so we can welcome you as one of the Society’s newest members.
If this is something you haven’t yet done, please consider leaving a legacy reflective of your appreciation for Gwynedd. Many people are surprised to learn they can make a meaningful gift just by adding a few words to their written will or IRA, designating Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School as a beneficiary.
Here is our Advisor's Guide, an “at-a-glance reference,” to assist you and/or your attorney when you update your estate plans.
Benefits of Membership
- Recognition on a Society Plaque displayed in the school's lobby
- Recognition as a Society Member in all future President's Reports
- Special event invitations and communications
Your gift, at whatever level, will go a long way to sustaining the tradition of a Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School education and experience, ensure long term financial stability, and create an enduring legacy for future generations of young women leaders rooted in Mercy values.
