There are a variety of ways to donate to Mercy Health Foundation:
We welcome general, outright donations to Mercy Health Foundation at any time. These gifts will be used for the area that has the greatest current need for financial support or you may designate your donation.
Gifts of Remembrance
Memorial gifts may be made for any occasion. Births, anniversaries, deaths and other life-cycle events are wonderful opportunities to create or add to an already established memorial for a loved one or special friend and we are pleased to receive donations in their name.
A gift can be made through a will or living trust which will not reduce your current income. This type of contribution can be specified to include a set dollar amount, a percentage of the estate or a certain remainder of the estate after others are provided for or a certain asset belonging to the estate.
Naming Mercy Health Foundation as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy is terrific way for our donors to help us ensure the stability of care in our community for future generations.
Charitable Annuities and Trusts
Agreements between Mercy Health Foundation and you can establish a guaranteed income for the rest of your life. There are many ways to increase your present income and provide continued support for our community after you are gone. At the same time, you can reduce the amount of income and estate taxes that might be required.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer′s name below.

How is my gift used?
The answer to this question is simple - however you want it to be used. Your gift may be restricted or unrestricted. Unrestricted gifts make it possible for Mercy to have flexibility - flexibility to meet their special and emergency needs. Your gift is an investment which brings an enriching return to the giver as well as to the receiver. Endowments may be established as unrestricted or with donor restrictions.
Is my gift important?
Yes. Whether you give $10, $100, $1,000 or more, you can be sure your gift is important. In total, they permit Mercy to perpetuate excellence and continue its mission of serving all who need care. Every gift is tangible evidence that you are involved in and concerned with quality health care.
