The Sisters of Mercy founded Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines in 1893 to provide health care services for all in need, regardless of financial capacity. Those same ideals guide the Mercy Foundation today.
Mercy Foundation is an extension of the healing ministry of Christ inspired by the Sisters of Mercy. Through this heritage, we connect donors to critical needs. Our purpose is to secure vital funding that ensures equal access, clinical excellence and high quality care for all.
Mercy Foundation is the preferred channel of giving to House of Mercy, Mercy College of Health Sciences, Bishop Drumm Retirement Center, Mercy Hospice, Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines, Centerville and West Lakes Hospital and Mercy Health Network.

Each gift is important and appreciated and ensures we can continue to meet the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. When you make a choice to partner with us, you are truly reaching out a helping hand to people when their need is greatest.
