Mercyhurst Magazine Fall 2017

O’NEIL SOCIETY HONORS THOSE MAKING PLANNED GIFTS The O’Neil Society is named for James and Orva O’Neil, whose gifts to Mercyhurst during the 1930s funded not only Christ the King Chapel, but also the adjoining Queen’s Chapel and the tower where it resides, now an iconic landmark on the campus. Their generosity in making the frst planned gift to the university has inspired dozens to follow with gifts of their own. Individuals who have included Mercyhurst in some sort of planned gift are provided membership in this special society. Planned gifts to Mercyhurst can help grow a number of key areas at Mercyhurst, and can be made with no impact to one’s quality of life. There are a variety of vehicles used to help fund planned gifts, including estate gifts, retirement plans, life insurance policies, charitable trusts, and more. Oftentimes planned gifts can be arranged in a very simple manner with one’s estate attorney or even retirement fund administrator. Members of the O’Neil Society are invited annually to a series of special events on the campus, and often work closely with members of the Advancement staf to help identify how they want their future gift to be used by the school. The list below includes friends whose planned giving is known to the university, while others wish to remain anonymous. For more information on making a planned gift, please contact Ryan J. Palm ’07, associate vice president for advancement, at 814-824-3320 .
