Volunteering

We love our volunteers!  If you’d like to spend time giving back either out-in-nature or inside at Well of Mercy, let us know.  From tending the gardens, maintenance projects, assisting in the office, to special events – let us know what your interests and availability are.  Sharing your time and talents with the ministry is a very valuable gift. Please contact the office to find out more.  mercy@wellofmercy.org.

Gift Certificate

Purchasing a gift certificate benefits both the ministry and a guest of your choice. Many people could use an overnight stay at Well of Mercy but may not have either the funds or the resolve to take time for themselves. You can be the encourager. Contact the office to purchase. While Gift Certificates make a great gift; they are not tax-deductible.

Matching Gift Programs

If your employer offers matching gifts, please contact your human resources department for the necessary forms to participate. This is a great way to DOUBLE your contribution. Note: Well of Mercy is listed on the Benevity Giving Platform.

Planned Giving

Including Well of Mercy in your will or designating as a retirement plan beneficiary is a wonderful way to continue your legacy through Well’s ministry. You can specify Well receive a predetermined amount or designate the remainder of your estate to be distributed to Well of Mercy after the family is taken care of.

If you already have a will, you can easily amend it through a simple legal transaction known as a “codicil” that includes Well of Mercy as a beneficiary of your estate.  Retirement accounts can make excellent charitable gifts, as individual beneficiaries may have significant income taxes incurred whereas non-profits like Well of Mercy will pay no income taxes on retirement plan proceeds (i.e. IRA, 401(k), 403(b), SEP, Profit Sharing Plans).

Qualified Charitable Distributions

Did you know that you can make a significant impact at Well of Mercy through your IRA? If you are 70½ years or older and have a traditional IRA, you can make a tax-free donation directly from your IRA to us, known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD).

Here’s how it works:

Age 70½ and Older: You can donate directly from your IRA to Well of Mercy without having to report the income. This means you can support our mission without increasing your taxable income.

Age 72 and Older: Your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD), potentially lowering your tax bill while supporting our cause.

Thanks to the Legacy IRA Act, the annual QCD limit of $100,000 is now indexed for direct gifts to charity, allowing even more impactful giving.

By choosing to give through a QCD, you help ensure that Well of Mercy continues to be a place of rest and spiritual renewal for all who visit, both now and in the future.

For more details on how to set up a QCD, please contact your IRA custodian or financial advisor. Thank you for considering this unique and impactful way to support Well of Mercy.
