Catherine McAuley SocietyThe Sisters of Mercy were founded by Catherine McAuley in Dublin, Ireland in 1831. Her lifelong examples of mercy and compassion guided the Sisters to begin Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines in 1893. The Catherine McAuley Society was created to honor Catherine McAuley and the generous people who have included Mercy in their estate plans. Planned gifts might include will or bequests or living trusts, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance, IRA or retirement plan assets, personal residences or farms with retained life estate plans. These types of gifts help Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines continues the compassionate mission of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy.
Mercy Foundation would like to invite you to join the Catherine McAuley Society. Please contact Lynda Jacobson (515.643.8025) and she will be happy to accommodate you.
