- Real Estate
- Life Insurance
- Mutual funds

Some organizations will match employee contributions to non-profit organizations. Please check with your employer about matching donor opportunities to further your contribution to MVC.
Make a donation in memory of someone who has embodied the work of MVC or perhaps was committed to serving their community. Upon receipt of your bequest, MVC will send a personalized card acknowledging your gift.
Make a donation to commemorate a holiday, birthday, wedding, or other special occasions. The special person you honor will receive a card from Mercy Volunteer Corps notifying him or her of your thoughtfulness and generosity.
