Continuing a Legacy of Giving
For more than 160 years, the words In Omnibus Caritas — in all things charity — have inspired the work of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine. It was for this purpose that they opened the doors of Mercy Hospital in 1908 to care for the people of Canton, Ohio, and surrounding communities, regardless of ability to pay. With the help of many devoted community members — together with hospital employees, staff and administration — we are able to continue the legacy of giving started by the Sisters of Charity.
Current Foundation Campaigns
Today the Mercy Development Foundation helps to continue their work through the following campaigns:
2018 Campaign of Caring
Mercy Development Foundation is holding its 2018 Campaign of Caring, our annual employee drive, which supports uncompensated care and community benefit, capital project development, and mission-based programs. In 2017, Mercy provided over $22.7 million in community benefit.
Memorials, Tributes & Honor a Caregiver
Generous donations to Mercy Medical Center, Mercy Hospice or Mercy Home Care are a beautiful way to celebrate a life, to remember a loved one or to honor a caregiver who met the needs of a patient and his or her family members in a special way.
Deferred Charitable Giving
- Wills and bequests
- Charitable gift annuities
- Charitable remainder trusts

This type of financial assett donation is given for a specified purpose at the bequest of a donor.
For individuals and organizations that have contributed to Mercy’s advancement in significant ways, Mercy offers the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy through philanthopic naming. Many naming opportunities are still available through the hospital’s 2nd Century Campaign.
Those who donate their gifts of time, talent and treasure help us reach farther – to help, heal and comfort. Through the wellspring of generosity from volunteers who believe in Mercy’s mission, it brings that ministry to life within the walls of our facilities, as well as the communities we serve.
