How We Help
The Mercy Tiffin Foundation began as an endowment fund. The endowment fund continues to exist today as a very important component of the Foundation. The Foundation’s Endowment Fund assures that community members will receive excellent, high quality and compassionate care well into the future. Gifts to and the principal of the Endowment Fund cannot be spent unless Mercy Tiffin Hospital experiences a financial crisis. A small portion of the interest is all that may be used. This allows the Endowment Fund to continue and gain strength thus insuring the continued financial viability of the hospital. It also provides an increased amount of funds from the interest to meet new and ongoing needs.
Donations may also be made for specific purposes. Oftentimes, patients are touched by the care they receive from a specific area or through a certain procedure and choose to make a donation to that area. When funds are designated in this way, they may only be used as the donor wishes.
Currently, the Mercy Tiffin Foundation is raising funds in support of the Mercy Cancer Center at Tiffin. The “Enhancing Cancer Care Through Faith, Hope and Love” campaign benefits comprehensive cancer care in Tiffin and Seneca County. Donations of $1,000 or more are recognized on a plaque within the cancer center. Naming opportunities are available at $5,000 each for infusion rooms. Additional naming opportunities will be available in the future as the cancer center continues to grow.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, the Mercy Tiffin Foundation supports a number of worthy causes that include Mercy Family Care – McAuley Center, Mercy Tiffin’s Work Grant program and more.
