Women with a Mission Jefferson

Striving to continue the legacy of Catherine McAuley, the Women with a Mission giving society combines resources, vision and passion for helping others to support and improve health care in our communities.

A mission-minded woman, Catherine McAuley founded Sisters of Mercy. In 1827 she was moved to respond to the suffering and poverty she witnessed around her in Dublin, Ireland. With a $1 million inheritance she established the first House of Mercy in Dublin. Today, we continue to strive to carry on Catherine’s mission to serve the poor, sick and uneducated – especially women, children and the elderly.

The satisfaction of knowing you are part of an empowered group of women who desire to make a difference in health care is a great feeling. Members are invited to two educational luncheons and two social events each year, as well as other special events hosted by Mercy Hospital and Mercy Health Foundation. Attendance to events is encouraged, but not required.

Membership

Membership is open to all who support the mission of Mercy Hospital with a minimum $1,000 annual gift. Each year, the Society identifies health care needs within Mercy. Each member is an equal partner in the decision-making process, and 100% of each gift directly supports the project(s) selected.

Upcoming Events

“Collectively, Women with a Mission donations are substantial and have real impact.”
