Planned Giving

Mercersburg is privileged to have numerous alumni and friends who make gifts to support the school while planning for their own future. Their generosity commemorates loved ones, celebrates special times at Mercersburg, or culminates a life’s work. The gift plans they use to create their legacies are tax-wise tools that yield significant immediate and long-term benefits.

If you have included the Academy in your estate plans, we sincerely hope you will share those plans with the school. If you have been considering such a step, we hope you will consult with your family and professional advisers. Please select any of the giving vehicles below to learn more.

If you have questions or would like to discuss any of these vehicles further, please contact Carolyn Griffin Yeager, director of development, at or 717-328-6219.

The Marshall & Irving Alliance was founded in 1993—the school's centennial year—to honor alumni, parents, and friends who have made planned gifts to Mercersburg through their estate or a life income arrangement. The alliance unites the names of the school's competing John Marshall and Washington Irving literary societies. Gifts of these types—one's final gifts—are perhaps the most meaningful endorsements an individual can make of the values and spirit that exemplify Mercersburg.
