Outright Gifts

The Friends of Mercy Foundation accepts gifts of all kinds from donations of cash or stock to memorial gifts in honor of a loved one. All gifts are listed in our annual publication, Friends for Life. 

Contributions of Cash, Check or Credit Card

An outright cash gift is the simplest form of giving and may be made in the form of cash, check or credit card. These contributions may be mailed or delivered in person to the foundation office. Please make checks payable to "Friends of Mercy Foundation."

Please enclose details about how you would like your gift used along with your contribution. This information can be in the form of a personal note, a reference on the memo line of your check or indicated on a Foundation gift envelope.

Unrestricted gifts are accepted by the Foundation and administered in accordance with the policies and directions of the Friends of Mercy Foundation Board of Directors.


Pledging is the method many donors choose to make more meaningful gifts. Monthly, quarterly or annual payment arrangements may be made with the Foundation, simply give us a call to arrange.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

A memorial gift is an enduring tribute to a friend or loved one. It is a way to honor someone special or a very personal way to convey your feelings to a family who has lost a loved one.

Making a tribute gift to honor an individual is a thoughtful way to commemorate a birthday, an anniversary or a kindness.  Frequently, tribute gifts are made to honor special care received at Mercy Hospitals.

Gift of Stock or Securities

An outright gift of securities to the Friends of Mercy Foundation can mean significant tax savings. If you are considering this type of gift, please contact the foundation office so we may assist you.
