Planned Giving Programs

What is planned giving?
Your planned gift combines your generosity with your financial planning to benefit both you and Misericordia. Planned gifts are usually gifts of your assets through such financial instruments as wills, trusts and annuities. It is strongly recommended that you consult your financial planner or accountant for assistance in making a planned gift. Making a planned gift planned will make a difference in the lives of over five hundred and fifty children and adult residents at Misericordia. 

For assistance with planned giving to Misericordia, please call Kevin Connelly at 773-273-4167, or

Misericordia has been blessed to have the support of so many wonderful people since its opening in 1921. Gifts at every level have allowed us to provide exceptional care despite what is happening around us, whether it be the economy or government cutbacks. It is our hope that we can continue providing these services not only to our existing residents, but also to those individuals who someday may reside at Misericordia.

To those friends who wish to help assure the continuation and growth of Misericordia through the mention in your will, the following general form is suggetsed: I give, devise, bequest to Misericordia Home, an Illinois not-for-profit organization, the sum of $_______ (or_____% of my estate) (or specifically described property)..

The charitable gift annuity has been used by many who wish to make a meaningful gift to Misericordia and still provide for their own future financial well-being. A gift annuity makes it possible for you to transfer cash or stock to Misericordia in exchange for a fixed payment for life. The annuity payments can be received on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis.
For example, Mike, who is 70 years of age, is interested in helping the children and adults of Misericordia and establishes a $25,000 gift annuity. Based on his age, Mike would receive an annual return of 6.5%, or $1,625, for the remainder of his life. He would also be eligible for a charitable deduction in the year he established the gift annuity. In addition, a portion of the income that Mike receives from the gift annuity would be excluded for income tax purposes.
Misericordia uses the charitable gift annuity rates recommended by the American Council on Gift Annuities. An annuity can also be established for two lives as well. The following are the current rates for a one-life charitable gift annuity:
One Life
Your Age
Rate of Return
5.2 %
5.5 %
5.8 %
6.4 %
7.2 %
8.1 %
9.5 %

Sharing with others can be one of life's greatest pleasures, but everyday financial obligations sometimes limit what many feel they can give without jeopardizing their security or that of loved ones.

This need not always be the case. By planning and timing of your gifts, you may find you can give more at lower cost. These gift plans can also help enhance your family's quality of life both now and later.

For more information and our free brochure outlining various plans, along with the special technical advisory section, please contact Kevin Connelly at 773-273-4167, or e-mail Kevin

Giving a gift to Misericordia through a retirement plan, such as a 401(k), IRA, or 403(b), may allow you to eliminate a portion of the state and federal income taxes that would be owed on these plans and the taxes owed by your estate as well. By including Misericordia as the beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement assets, you can minimize your taxes, preserve more assets for your loved ones and support the mission of Misericordia Home.

It is extremely important that you consult with your financial planner or accountant before making a decision on gifting your retirement assets to a charity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kevin Connelly at 773-273-4167, or e-mail Kevin.
