Associate Giving

Thousands of Associates support Mercy Hospital and Catholic Health through charitable giving, and together, donate more than a quarter of a million dollars each year. This generosity helps us continue to be a best place to work, practice medicine and receive care.

Like all donors to Mercy Hospital Foundation, Associate donor philanthropy helps to ensure high-quality care is always available in our community.

Associates can make annual renewable gifts by enrolling in our payroll deduction program, which provides an affordable way to support the foundation throughout the year. Click here to make your gift today.

Associates can also visit the foundation office at any time to make a one time gift.

Stories of Inspired Associate Giving

There are many reasons why our associates choose to allocate a portion of their compensation back to the hospital. Below are a few testimonials from several of our associates that have made the important decision to support Mercy Hospital Foundation.


"I choose to give because I like to help people. I truly believe in our mission at Father Baker Manor and Catholic Health."

– Patricia Fernandes, Director, Social Work


"I give because I have been blessed to be part of the Mercy Hospital family. I have worked for Mercy Skilled Nursing for 26 years. Mercy has reached out to and cares for our elderly in the community with excellence, reverence, compassion and justice. Every day is a blessing to me to be part of this ministry."

– Cheryl Kropczynski, LPN,
Mercy Skilled Nursing Facility at OLV


"I believe in supporting Mercy's Foundation, so that continued good works and needed support remains strong within the community for years to come."

– Kara Smith, Administrative Assistant, Facilities & Engineering


"I am willing to give because I believe in everything we do here at Mercy Hospital. I see miracles happen daily and feel that my contribution helps with the cost of the specialized equipment or for employee edcuation to help make these miracles happen. Knowledge is power, especially with the many new and advanced procedures we perform here at Mercy. The question asked to me was, 'Why do I give?' and my answer is, 'Why wouldn't I give?' I helped create all these miracles at Mercy."

– Daniel Westfield, Respiratory Therapist
