Why Give

Home / The Mercy Foundation / Why Give

When you donate to The Mercy Foundation, you’re doing much more than giving money…you’re making a difference. Any size contribution matters and small donations add up; what matters is the outcome your giving produces, plus the money stays local.

How your gifts help us

As The Mercy Foundation grows, so does its ability to make significant financial gifts and purchases for Mercy Hospital.

Your donation will go directly to support the medical equipment and initiatives that need it most. Here are a few examples of some of the good things many people made possible:

  • The purchase of equipment and technologies that improve the quality of patient care and the safety of Mercy staff, such as the hydraulic-powered patient lift for Mercy’s ambulance, specialty patient chair for the Chemotherapy department, Therapeutic Listening devices for the Rehabilitation department.
  • The purchase of furnishings and artwork for many areas throughout the facility.
  • Establishing Mercy Foundation Scholarships at Barnum, Cromwell/Wright, Moose Lake, and Willow River High Schools for students pursuing further education in any of the allied health fields ($1,000 per school per year).

Many needs – and many ways to help!

Like all gifts, gifts that come to The Mercy Foundation can come in many forms and sizes. As you walk through the halls of Mercy, have you considered sponsoring a lovely work of art or perhaps a much needed treatment or patient room? In addition to the more traditional forms of cash or check, we are able to accept gifts via credit card, arrange periodic automatic withdrawals from a checking or savings account,  help with wills and bequests and process transfers of stock and gifts of real property, to name a few. Our flexibility helps our donors help us!  Let us know if we can be of help to you as you make plans for your legacy.
