Who We Are

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

Our Heritage

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 legacy to serve the poor, sick and uneducated – especially women, children and the elderly.

Benefits

Striving to continue the legacy of Catherine McAuley, Women with a Mission giving society combines resources, vision and passion for helping others to support and improve health care in our communities. Women with a Mission giving society unites diverse women with a common goal: bringing high-quality health care to all people who need it, no matter where they live, no matter what they can afford.

Membership Details

All women who support Mercy with a minimum annual gift of $1,000 become a Women with a Mission member. We donate together, so our gift has greater impact — and we vote to direct how the funds will be used. Members also enjoy quarterly meetings with fun social, educational and networking opportunities — and the chance to meet like-minded women from other regions at ministry-wide events.

Chris Glauber shares about what the Women with a Mission giving society means to her.
