Planned Giving: Mother Marguerite O'Connell Society

What is your legacy?

The task of ensuring MCC’s future rests with those who invest in the school with a vision for tomorrow. Planned giving is a way to leave a legacy of support for the school.

There are many vehicles to make a planned gift, all of which provide their own opportunities and advantages for you and MCC.

2.	Mother Marguerite O’Connell, the first Franciscan Sister of the Allegheny at MCC High School, is the namesake of the planned giving society at the school.

Mother Marguerite served as the first Principal 
of Melbourne Central Catholic High School.

We named the Mother Marguerite O'Connell Society for the first Franciscan Sister of the Allegheny at Melbourne Central Catholic High School, honoring a woman whose life demonstrated her commitment to educational excellence in the Catholic tradition.

The Society is composed of individuals and families who have included Melbourne Central Catholic High School in their estate plans or have named MCC as a beneficiary in a charitable gift arrangement.

If you have already named MCC a beneficiary in your plans, we welcome you to the Mother Marguerite O'Connell Society. As a member of the Society, you exemplify exceptional commitment to, and faith in, Melbourne Central Catholic High School that will have a direct impact on generations of future MCC students.

If you are considering a planned gift, please consult your financial advisor or attorney when making a gift plan. These professionals can help you realize your specific goals as well as give you more detailed information about a plan that best suits you and your goals.
