Gift of Retirement Plan Diagram

You've worked hard and planned for retirement. Now, with a little creativity, you can leverage your retirement assets to benefit you and your family, reduce federal taxes, and support Mercy Foundation North far into the future.

How It Works

  • Name or designate Mercy Foundation North as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Pass the balance of your retirement assets to Mercy Foundation North by contacting your plan administrator.
  • Important! Tell Mercy Foundation North about your gift. Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify us. So if you don't tell us, we may not know.

Benefits

  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals.
  • Maintain flexibility to change beneficiaries if your family's needs change during your lifetime.
  • Your heirs avoid the potential double taxation on the assets left in your retirement account.
