One of the most powerful ways you can support families facing conflict, crisis and disaster around the world is by including Mercy Corps as a beneficiary in your will. Your legacy gift connects your life story with our work for years to come—and with the lives of the millions of people we reach.
Everyone who establishes a legacy gift is invited to join our Giron Legacy Society, our way of honoring you for your lasting commitment and encouraging others to follow your example. The Giron Legacy Society is named in honor of Oscar “Tito” Giron, a bright and charismatic Guatemalan pediatrician, and one of our first employees. Tito established a village health program in Honduras, where he rode his small motorcycle back and forth between villages to treat his patients. Sadly, Tito died in service to others, a victim of political unrest. With the Giron Legacy Society, we honor his commitment and devotion to serving others.
As a member of the Giron Legacy Society, you’ll receive exclusive reports on our work in the field and invitations to special events where you can learn more about the impact you’re making around the world.
If you decide to leave us in your will, please reference our legal name, Mercy Corps, and our tax ID: 91-1148123. And please let us know! We’d love to recognize you for your generosity and welcome you into the Giron Legacy Society.
