Thank you for considering a legacy gift to MCC!
Legacy giving involves important and sometimes complex decisions. MCC donor relations staff have many years of experience helping generous supporters align their own, deeply held beliefs, values and priorities with the work of MCC. We will be happy to help you explore how a legacy gift to MCC might fit in with your life plan!
Professional legal or financial advisors can also help you determine the size and timing of your gift, as well as any potential tax benefits. They, along with MCC staff, can then match your wishes with your resources and the work of MCC. MCC staff are also happy to speak with your financial or legal advisors as needed.
MCC recommends the services provided by the Everence Foundation, Mennonite Brethren Foundation or Brethren in Christ Foundation. Contact your local MCC office for referrals to these or other trusted organizations that specialize in charitable giving and share values with MCC.
There are several ways to establish your legacy through MCC. You can arrange gifts of cash, life insurance, securities, property and more. Once you decide that legacy giving through MCC aligns with your values and life plan, leaving a gift will require a few additional considerations, such as:
Type of gift and amount: In addition to being in conversation with MCC, we strongly encourage you to discuss your intentions with your family, legal or financial advisor to help you choose which is the most suitable gift option for you.
Update or creation of your legacy gift: You should be sure to clearly identify MCC, using MCC’s tax identification number and address:
Mennonite Central Committee U.S.
PO Box 500
Akron PA 17501-0500
