Our Spirit of Giving no background

Friends of Friends

Mercy Hospitals has a long history of philanthropic support, and Mercy employees have always been the first to give and have given most generously. We proudly offer our employees the opportunity to continue this tradition of giving through Our Spirit of Giving, the Friends of Mercy Foundation’s annual employee giving program.

This program is supported by more than 40% of Mercy’s 1,200 employees, and has raised more than $1,000,000 since its founding in 2010. 

Now, we would like to offer you the opportunity to be a friend of Friends of Mercy, by giving to the same projects our employees generously support. And just like our employees, you get to choose which of this year’s projects you would like to support:

  • Mercy Hospital Southwest Patient Care Tower - Surgery
  • Sister Judy Morasci Endowment for Women & Children: On January 1, 2021, Sister Judy Morasci, RSM, officially retired as Vice President of Mission Integration after 26 years of dedicated service to Mercy Hospitals and the Bakersfield Community. To honor her legacy, the Friends of Mercy Foundation established the Sister Judy Morasci Endowment for Women and Children. This endowment will live in perpetuity, benefitting local organizations that serve women and children with the most critical need.
  • Community Outreach "Comfort & Caring"
    Will support Acoustic Remedies, Art & Spirituality Center & the Homemaker Care Program
