Mercy Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization dependent on the generosity of caring individuals, corporations and foundations to support Mercy’s mission of delivering compassionate care and exceptional service to the community.
Mercy was founded in gratitude.
When a young Irish woman named Catherine McAuley received an unexpected inheritance, she gave thanks to God and her benefactor. Catherine used those funds to open the first house of Mercy, serving impoverished women and children in Dublin.
Today, the mission Catherine began over 100 years ago is stronger than ever.
The Mercy Health Foundation Ministry team provides support and resources for all the local Foundations across Mercy’s ministry.
