Mercy Health Foundation honored as AHP High Performer 2016


The Mercy Health Foundation was recently designated as a 2016 High Performer by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP).  The Mercy Health Foundation is among 44 other High Performer organizations from the United States and Canada ranking in the top 25th percentile based on net production returns for 2015 results.  More than 200 participating organizations were considered for High Performer status.

In its Report on Giving survey, AHP analyzes the factors that affect or lead to higher performance standards among fundraising programs by studying institutions with the highest levels of net production returns.  In the United States, net fundraising revenue for high performers is almost seven times higher than for all institutions reporting. The high performers group represented the top 25% of all reporting organizations, or those that had net production returns of higher than $11.9 million.

“This is a great honor,” said Jon Labbe, Mercy Health Foundation Interim President & CEO.  “More important, it is a testament to the passionate work of our volunteers, staff and donors whose gifts help Mercy Health have a profound local impact in the communities we serve.”

“Giving is at the heart of our Mission at Mercy Health,” said John Starcher, president and CEO of Mercy Health. “Our philanthropy work creates an important connection with donors, volunteers, patients and their families, who know the impact of faith-based care. Ultimately, our patients and the communities we serve benefit most from the outstanding performance of the Mercy Health Foundation.”

The Mercy Health Foundation and its affiliate foundations in 10 communities across Ohio and Kentucky partner with donors to make lives better and communities stronger, with a special emphasis on those who are poor or under-served. The Mercy Health Foundation raises charitable funds to advance the mission of Mission of Mercy Health. The Mercy Health Foundation steps in with financial support to fill the gaps that prevent people from getting the health care they need by investing in the not-for-profit programs and facilities of Mercy Health. The Foundation helps bring life-affirming health care, at the highest possible level, to all people.

This is what we were meant to do.

Join our mission to help the poor and underserved be well.
