Children's HealthCare Fund

By joining forces with concerned citizens, Mercy Foundation has created and built a fund that benefits the families of children who have demonstrated financial need for health care and related assistance and the organizations that serve them.

The Children's HealthCare Fund helps ease the financial burden on families of expenses like special equipment, medications, and transportation. Grants from the fund are made possible by generous community donations through the Foundation's Festival of Trees event, which is held annually in early December.
