The Mary Mitchell Legacy Society: Creating a Living Legacy

Planned gifts include bequests, gifts of property or real estate, and gifts that return an income for life, such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities. Some gifts provide more tax advantages than others, making it easier to achieve charitable and personal financial goals.

To honor the legacy of Mintaha “Mary” Mitchell, mother of Senator George J. Mitchell, the Mary Mitchell Society’s members are comprised of those who have committed to including the Mitchell Institute in their estate plans.

The Pioneer Scholar Program

The Pioneer Scholar Program, a partnership between generous supporters and the Mitchell Institute, provides the opportunity to recognize specific Mitchell Scholars and Alumni who, through their contributions to school and community and their demonstration of certain qualities – as students and as citizens­ – stand out for acknowledgement.
