The Mercy Foundation reaches $1 million goal

The Mercy Foundation recently surpassed its $1 million goal in its Well Within Reach multi-year hospital building campaign. This milestone caps the foundation’s major fundraising campaign two years ahead of schedule.


“The generous support from the entire community, from donations both big and small, has been monumental toward the success of this campaign,” said Michelle Anderson, The Mercy Foundation Director. “These donations to support Mercy’s now completed building project have made a real difference in the community and are greatly appreciated by the foundation, hospital staff and Mercy patients.”


“The support for this campaign has been phenomenal,” added Mike Delfs, Mercy CEO. “We are extremely thankful for the community’s ongoing support and for their investment in local healthcare. We are honored to care for our patients in our state-of-the-art community hospital.”


The Well Within Reach campaign contributes its success to several cornerstones, including a recent donation of $65,000 from Member’s Cooperative Credit Union. Major gifts were received from residents of the community to sponsor the hospital’s main lobby, upstairs hospital wing, and ER Department, just to name a few examples.


Donors who gave $1,000 or more during the campaign will be honored in a permanent display near the lobby.


Although the campaign is ending, opportunities to support the hospital will continue. To donate or pledge, contact Michelle R. Anderson at or call her at 218-485-5586.
